    1)figure out what amino acids will be joined to make the protein coded for by this segment of dna if the bottom strand is used to make the mRNA.

    2)Make a mutation in the dna sequence by changing only one base pair that you expect might have an affect on the protein that is made.

    3)Make a mutation in the DNA sequence by changing only one base pair that you expect would have no affect on the protein that is made.
