This kit teaches students how to translate a strand of messenger RNA (from the DNA-RNA Kit) into a strand of amino acids which forms the primary structure of a protein. Students use the Genetic Code Large Print Braille (included in the kit) to decode the messenger RNA and form transfer RNA molecules that guide the sequencing of amino acids.
