For this hands on activity you should download the “Mutations: Changing the Genetic Code” simulation from MOLO.
Complete all 7 pages of the simulation, answering all the questions and taking the snapshots as directed. For each snapshot you should explain what your image is showing. When you have completed the simulation, click on the button at the bottom of the screen that says Create a report for printing and submission. Choose to Print without login and enter your name in the appropriate field. Instead of school, please enter the term. When the next screen pops up, hit the print button. Instead of printing though, you can choose to save the file as a PDF. Then return here to submit your PDF document.
Note there are no optional questions for you; all questions in the simulation are required even if marked “optional.”
This document shows you an example submission; please note that it only includes answers to a few questions and a single snapshot to give you an idea of how to complete this assignment.
Basic Requirements (the assignment will not be accepted or assessed unless the follow criteria have been met):
- Assignment includes 6 snapshots.
- Assignment includes answer to all 13 questions.
