Probabilities, Dihybrid and Test Crosses
8 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Epistasis originated from genetics but now applies to biochemistry, computational biology, and evolutionary biology. The video introduces epistasis as it relates to genetics. It also discusses dihybrid crosses, test crosses, polygenic...
Mendelian Genetics, Probability, Pedigree, and Chi-Square Statistics
9th - 12th CCSS: Designed
New ReviewPeople with the sickle cell trait, but not sickle cell disease, find natural protection against malaria. Scholars consider various combinations of genotypes and environmental factors to determine if children might have sickle cell...
The Probabilities of Problems: A Look at Genetic Inheritance
7th - 10th
Discuss an article about families affected by genetic disorders and their decisions about whether or not to evaluate their own genetic information. Investigate four different inherited disorders. Participate in a probability exercise....
Journey of Man: A Genetic Odyssey, Part 11 of 13
10 mins 9th - 12th
Geneticist Spencer Wells continues in part 11 off the 13-part Journey of Man series. Your class will witness the amazing survival techniques employed by the Chuchi people that are probably very similar to the techniques used by our Ice...
Mechanisms that Increase Genetic Variation
12 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Learn how genetic variation occurs within prokaryotes through transformation, transduction, and conjugation. The instructor then explains how sexual reproduction in eukaryotes can lead to crossing over, random assortment, and random...
Exploring Genetics Across the Middle School Science and Math Curricula
6th - 8th CCSS: Designed
Where is a geneticist's favorite place to swim? A gene pool. Young geneticists complete hands-on activities, experiments, and real-world problem solving throughout the unit. With extra focus on dominant and recessive genes, Punnett...
Punnett Squares with Piebald Deer
5th - 10th CCSS: Adaptable
Explore the science behind Earth's amazing diversity of life with this lesson on genetics. Looking at specific traits in piebald deer, carnations, and roan cattle, young scientists use Punnett squares to determine the possible genotypes...
A Farmer’s Challenge to Breed to the Greatest of Grapes
7th CCSS: Designed
What does your class know about GMOs? Are they savvy to selective breeding? Challenge young minds to engineer the greatest crop of all time using a hands-on genetics unit. Learners discover the good and bad details of selective breeding,...
Understanding Genetics: Punnett Squares
9th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Can scientists really predict genetic outcomes or are they simply making a lucky guess? Scholars first learn about Gregor Mendel and how to make Punnett squares. Then they extract DNA from a strawberry in a lab with included conclusion...
Evolutionary Relationships Based Upon Comparative Genetics
9th - 12th
Students investigate the protein cytochrome c in an attempt to use its genetic chemistry to study possible evolutionary relationships between organisms. The activity integrates technology with the use computers to perform DNA analysis.
