Chapter 12 Assignment
I would like you to create either
a. a children's storybook for children between ages 10 and 13
b. a cartoon book for children between ages 10 and 13
about how DNA replicates itself.
1. You may work as a group of 2 or 4. Single authors are discouraged (this is a lot of work).
2. You may choose partner(s) other than your current group if you please.
3. You must include the following information in your cartoon series or storybook:
single-stranded binding proteins (SSBP's)
DNA topoisomerases I and II
origin of replication
5' to 3' direction
Also, include information on these scientists (favorable please)
Watson and Crick
Meselsohn and Stahl
4. Your final project should be
fun to read as well as learn from
Project is due on Monday, 4/11/00 and is worth 100 pts.
Use your textbook, as well as the Internet Sites I have below in the Links section. Also use the MIT Biology Hypertextbook link, and log into LOGAL Express from your computer's desktop.
