In this module, students will learn to identify the open reading frames for a given gene, and define the phases of the splice donor and acceptor sites.
Translation of messenger RNA is required for synthesis of proteins. Students will learn to determine the codons for specific amino acids and identify reading frames by looking at the base position track in the genome browser, to assemble exons to maintain the open reading frame (ORF) for a given gene, define the phases of the splice donor and acceptor sites and describe how they impact the maintenance of the ORF, and identify start and stop codons of an assembled ORF.
