Complete the assignment on a piece of brightly colored paper. The instructions are below. To research, click on the link, find your assigned protein by scrolling down the page or by using the “Jump to a Molecule” drop-down menu: Protein of the Month
Or you may try searching (google) each assignment question.
Follow these instructions carefully. You have 25 minutes before its time to present to the class.
1. Research your assigned protein
2. On bright paper:
(5pts) Prominently and creatively display the name of the protein and the following information:
(5pt) is it a functional protein (enzyme) or a structural protein.
(5pts) describe function in 10 words or less and explain what happens to the organism if the protein is not present
(5pts) present your protein to the class

Christmas holidays seemed to fly by way too fast! Welcome back!
We are beginning our unit on DNA. 1st and 2nd periods need to make up Wednesday’s assignment this week. You can find the video and prompt on the Daily Assignments page under 1/08/14. I must have this by Friday for you to earn full credit.
I will be posting links to help you understand DNA structure and function if you need extra help.
p.s. Look what I got for Christmas…
