Genetics

Session 1

In Session 1 I learned about how DNA are in chromosomes, and that chromosomes are in the cells nucleus, Chromosomes and DNA are what makes us up as humans.

Session 2

In Session 2 I used this genetics kit to show what a DAN strand would look like. What it looks like is a ladder twisted around.

Session 3

In Session 3 i used legos to simulate heredity and traits. Each lego was a trait from each parent. I would pull 2 at a time to determine the traits the animal/person would have.

Session 4

In session 4 i used the punnet square above to find out the probability of different color offspring of frogs. I found out how a repressive and dominant gene interact to determine a offspring's color and how a parents colors don't matter with the offspring's colors.

Session 5

In Session 5 I learned how to use a Punnett square to find the offspring using 2 traits instead of one. and how to find sex-linked traits.

Session 6

In Session 6 i learned about the risks and benefits of using genetic engineering, and about how we use genetic engineering to make cows that produce more milk.

Session 7

In Session 7 i learned more about the risks and benefits of genetic engineering and other genetics and reviewed all other things i learned during this modal.
