Genetics

Session 1-7
Ginny Atkins

I made a model almost exact to this in session one the genetics module

Genetics

During session 1 I started off by learning the basics and definitions in genetics. I also got to explore the history, and actually make a DNA molecule.In session 2 I explored the process of mitosis and meiosis, and got to try combining chromosome pairs with beads. In session 3 I investigated how dominant and recessive genes combine. In session 4 I got to uses LEGO bricks to make alleles, I then combined alleles to produce offspring. In session 5 I learned about sex linked traits and a dihybrid cross. In session 6 I learned about selective breeding and saw how people use it to the benefits today. I also got to write a paragraph about how i feel in different situations. A job the relates to genetics could be farmers. They select the seeds from different crops and pair them together to get the best crops for the next season. Dog breeders also do the same process. in session & i ended genetics by taking my post test and then i used LEGO bricks to simulate a population.
