Q: Hello, First time coach here, fumbling my way through. I am watching the GENE-ius workshop and when answering question re: using the Codon chart, 13:55 into the workshop video, there is question about a mutation in the gene sequence. The amino acid sequence is identified as “methionine, leucine, tryptophan, tryptophan, glutamic acid, glutamic acid, stop.” The way I am reading it, there is only one glutamic acid before the Stop. Could you please check that for me? I just want to make sure I am understanding it correctly and that I teach the kids correctly. I think there is an error in the answer given. If I am mistaken, then I apologize, and I will need some further clarification on how to read the sequence. Thank you!!
A: Thank you for your comment. You are correct. The correct amino acid sequence resulting from the mutation is Met-Leu-Trp-Trp-Glu-Stop. I am unable to modify the video from last year but the corrected pdf of the PowerPoint used during the presentation has been posted here.
