Note from the author:
A min lab looking at the process of translation/protein synthesis
Go to:
http://lab.concord.org/embeddable.html#interactives/sam/DNA-to-proteins/3-modeling-translation.json
and go through the process of transcription either step by step or letting the process play through on its own. Then, answer the questions below.
The table below shows an english letter on the left and a DNA codon to the right.
