Storyboard Text

  • The DNA is being unzipped and is then modified into a smaller version of itself. They do this so that the smaller DNA now RNA strand can leave the nucleus.
  • The end result of transcription is a one helix strand of the modified DNA called RNA
  • A Ribosome then comes in and takes 3 Mrna at a time to create amino acids.  When all the amino acids are in a line the process of translation is done.
  • When the translation process is done you are left with a line of amino acids called a protein.
  • Whoops, I just put the animo acids in the wrong order. 
  • If mistakes are made in the process of translation or transcription then you will have a birth defect.
  • DNA is considered the "blueprint of all life" because DNA is the object that starts the process of making a protein so without DNA you cannot have RNA or a protein. If the blueprint is not followed correctly then your child will have a birth defect and if the blueprint was not followed very well then the offspring will have multiple defects.
