On the Subject of Genetic Sequences
Only true scientists synthesize proteins while bomb defusing.
See Appendix A for indicator identification reference.
- The module consists of four lettered buttons, a button labeled "OK", a button labeled "CLR" and two display screens.
- To disarm the module, input the correct DNA sequence using the lettered buttons and press "OK" to submit. Submitting an incorrect sequence will cause a strike. Press "CLR" to clear all input.
- The default input sequence is the coding strand. If you are instructed to alternate the final input sequence, switch between the coding strand and the template strand.
Determine Starting Amino Acid
Using the table below, determine the starting amino acid by referring to the order in which the four lettered buttons appear in the module. Follow the first rule that applies.
|Rule||Starting Amino Acid|
|The buttons appear in alphabetical order.||Trp|
|The subsequence "ACT" is present in the button order.||Gly|
|"G" is the label of the last button.||Tyr|
|"T" is the label of the first button.||Cys|
|The button labeled "C" appears before the buttons labeled "A" and "T".||Arg|
|The buttons labeled "A" and "T" are next to each other.||Leu|
|The buttons labeled "G" and "C" are next to each other.||Ala|
|No other rules apply.||Asn|
