translation

    In this video, researchers explain to us a new project which attempts to unify the method used in different laboratories to read the information written in genes. The aim is to made advances in the techniques which will help us discover more about the genetic base of diseases which should help us prevent, diagnose and treat them. 

Did you know that how you perceive tastes depends on your genes? That and many other traits. Learn how DNA passes on its message, factors that influence how it works and recent advances in genetics which mean we can now carry out more personalised studies. 

Phase 1: With the genetic material necessary for producing EPO to hand, you'll be invited to perform translation in order to obtain the protein. With the help of the computer you'll then check if you've obtained the desired protein and will know if the genetic material is fit for purpose. 

Once you've done that you can move onto phase 2. You'll need to save your DNA sequence for phase 2.
