We’ll start by looking at the structure of DNA, then studying two important processes – replication and protein synthesis.  I will give you some handouts in class, but here are other resources you might find helpful.  I will add to this post as we find more.

This brilliant website by John Kyrk. 

These presentations from Mr Taylor: DNA structure   DNA replication   Protein synthesis core   Protein synthesis HL  

Protein Synthesis – AHL

Watch this video on how to extract DNA from strawberries.  We’ll be doing it in class.
