Question:  In the team workshop presentation, one of the sample questions asks students to write down the amino acid sequence to start the dystrophin protein. How/when are students supposed to know to look for a start sequence? Will every question that asks them to write out an amino acid sequence include a start?
 
Answer: If given a DNA sequence not starting with ATG, students should be able to locate the first ATG and start reading the triplet codons from that point. Please see the samples in the study guide for more information (page 19).
