7. Use your other 12 nucleotides to construct the COMPLEMENTARY RIGHT STRAND of DNA (A with T and C with G) 8. Record the sequence of your Right Strand in Table 2. 9. You now should a model of DNA that looks like a ladder. 10. Use string to attach your DNA model to the bottom of a coat hanger for hanging.

PART B - Determining DNA's Amino Acid Sequence 11. Using the Base Sequence of ONLY the LEFT STRAND of DNA, write the bases in order (top to bottom) in Table 4. (12 bases) BASE PAIRING RULE For RNA: (Remember that uracil replaces thymine) A pairs with U C pairs with G 12. Now determine the mRNA Bases that would match up with your DNA sequences & write these bases in Table 4. (mRNA "reads" DNA so ribosomes can put amino acids in the right order when proteins are made.) 13. Use the mRNA codon table (Table 3) to write the 4 Amino Acids that your DNA strand codes for when a protein is being made.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
