This undated resource is just what its description indicates - a very technical article geared towards advanced science learning. The article details the discovery of a 22nd genetically encoded amino acid by Ohio State University researchers in 2002.
This resource does not specify a source, nor does it include any sort of objectives or other pedagogical strategies for using this resource in an educational setting. It would be nice to see some attribution to the Ohio State articles from which the language was assembled:
http://researchnews.osu.edu/archive/aminoacd.htm and http://researchnews.osu.edu/archive/aminosyn.htm
Perhaps the Curriki community could consider adding some strategies for using this resource in a classroom.
