Instructional Ideas

  • Use as a visual aid to support instruction of how regulatory genes control transcription
  • Have scholars discuss the next steps based on their knowledge of p53
Classroom Considerations

  • Learners should have general knowledge of DNA and RNA, the process of transcription, polymerase, and p53

  • Good visual aid of regulatory genes
  • Narrator provides a good description of the process

  • The visuals are hard to identify without knowledge of p53 and transcription
