  4. Module 6: Alternative Splicing

    25 Jul 2020 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):

    By Leocadia Paliulis1, Anne Rosenwald2

    1. Bucknell University 2. Georgetown University

    This module explores how multiple different mRNAs and polypeptides can be encoded by the same gene. After completing this module students will be able to explain how alternative splicing of a gene...

  5. Module 5: The Need for an Open Reading Frame

    25 Jul 2020 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):

    By Carina Howell1, Leocadia Paliulis2, Anne Rosenwald3

    1. Lock Haven University 2. Bucknell University 3. Georgetown University

    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.

  6. Module 4: Removal of Introns from pre-mRNA by Splicing

    25 Jul 2020 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):

    By Meg Laakso1, Anne Rosenwald2

    1. Eastern University 2. Georgetown University

    In this module, students will learn to identify splice donor and acceptor sites that are best supported by RNA-Seq data, and use the canonical splice donor and splice acceptor sequences to identify...

  7. Module 3: Transcription, Part II: What Happens to the Initial Transcript Made by RNA pol II?

    25 Jul 2020 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):

    By Cathy Silver Key1, Chiyedza Small2, Laura Reed3

    1. North Carolina Central University 2. Medgar Evers College CUNY 3. The University of Alabama

    This module teaches about the three key steps that are involved in converting the pre-mRNA into a mature mRNA: 1) The addition of a 5’ cap, 2) The addition of a 3’ poly(A) tail, 3) The removal of...

  8. Module 2: Transcription Part I: From DNA Sequence to Transcription Unit

    25 Jul 2020 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):

    By Maria Santisteban1, Alexa Sawa2

    1. University of North Carolina - Pembroke 2. College of the Desert

    This module illustrates how a primary transcript (pre-mRNA) is synthesized using a DNA molecule as the template. Students will learn about the importance of the 5' and 3' regions of the gene for...

  9. CRISPR Gene Editing: Designing the gRNA and Donor Template

    15 Jul 2020 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):

    By Laurel Lorenz


    In this adaptation, students learn how CRISPR/Cas9 is used in bacterial immunity and gene editing. Students create both a gRNA target and a donor template to edit a gene. Mutations can be from the...
