The Genetics Concepts Kit simulates multiple generations of mendelian inheritance.
- Students Rediscover Mendel's Law of Genetics
- Application: Simulating Gametogenesis and Fertilization
- Time Required: Three to Five 50 Minute Class Periods
- Teacher's Guide Included
Through a series of simulated experiments, students experience the same problems encountered by Mendel. They rediscover his Law of Genetics using specially designed GAM-ETO-DISCS® and TETRADICE® to simulate Gametogenesis and fertilization.
These unique LAB-AIDS® items produce random genotype combinations that are statistically consistent. This lab activity was developed as a game format for a high level of interest and involvement by the students.
Ordering information: This kit includes a teacher’s guide with SDS, student worksheets and guides, dominance and blending tubes, shakers, tape, packet double-faced, TETRADICE GAM-ETO-DISCS, co-dominant (red), co-dominant (white), dihybrid (TY/ty yellow), hybrid (Y/y yellow), pure dominant (YY/YY yellow), and pure recessive (yy/yy green).
