Carolina Messenger: The RNA Game

Without messenger RNA (mRNA), your genes are useless. Messenger RNA transfers genetic information from a cell's nucleus to its cytoplasm to direct protein synthesis. Rolling the DNA Dice™, students have fun as they learn how an mRNA copy of genetic DNA information is made. Using simple charts, they discover how to convert DNA codon sequences into mRNA codons.

These charts also show students how mRNA codons specify amino acids during protein synthesis on ribosomes. In the end, seemingly complex events are all made easy to understand through the game's DNA Dice™, simple charts, and illustrated educational game book.

For 2 to 5 players, age 13 and up.A fun, meaningful way to teach and learn about genes, messenger RNA, and proteins!
