Cracking the Genetic Code (A level) - Worksheet and Markscheme
The worksheet focuses on student understanding of the experiments carried out by Nirenberg and Khorana to determine which codons/triplets code for which amino acids.

The worksheet details their investigations into the genetic code and provides a scaffold for students to draw conclusions from their original data. This is sound practice for questions of this type, which are becoming an increasingly frequent aspect of examinations. It also serves to consolidate on existing knowledge regarding the genetic code and is a useful reflection activity in its own right.
