Alien DNA Lab

In my biology class recently we have been learning about DNA. To learn more about this, the class did a lab where we were all given different sheets with DNA sequences on them coding for different proteins. Each little DNA sequence on the sheet would code for different traits like a long nose, hair, amount of arms or legs, and even the color. After you figured out what your proteins were, you could find the traits that matched and start drawing your alien. I decided to make mine kinda cute! This activity was a lot of fun and helped me learn how about how DNA translates into RNA and proteins.
