Classroom Considerations
  • Teacher needs a computer, access to the Internet, and a way to project the video to use the resource
  • The video repeats concepts taught in the fourth video in the series
  • Video 13 in a series of 31
  • Gives students a problem to work and walks them through the answer
  • At the end, the narrator says that today, we just sequence the DNA, but if we compare our sequence to the work of Morgan and Sturtevant, it matches up perfectly
  • None
