This Week In Biology! 10/15

October15

Week of 10/15/18 (tentative & subject to change)
Monday: Begin DNA Replication notes and activities
Tuesday: continue Transcription and Translation notes and activities
Wednesday: continue Transcription and Translation notes and activities; Schoology QUIZ due Thursday Midnight
Thursday: continue Transcription and Translation notes and activities; Review;
QUIZ Due Midnight
Friday: DNA Replication Unit Test; Real-Talk Due; DNA Model Project Due MONDAY
***Remember you can be quizzed daily. Be Prepared***
***Remember to always login and check Schoology***

SB2. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to analyze how genetic information is
expressed in cells.
a. Construct an explanation of how the structures of DNA and RNA lead to the expression of
information within the cell via the processes of replication, transcription, and translation.
b. Construct an argument based on evidence to support the claim that inheritable genetic
variations may result from:
 new genetic combinations through meiosis (crossing over, nondisjunction);
 non-lethal errors occurring during replication (insertions, deletions, substitutions); and/or
 heritable mutations caused by environmental factors (radiation, chemicals, and viruses).
c. Ask questions to gather and communicate information about the use and ethical
considerations of biotechnology in forensics, medicine, and agriculture.
(Clarification statement: The element is intended to include advancements in technology
relating to economics and society such as advancements may include Genetically Modified
Organisms.)
