Genetics and DNA Studies Classroom Kits
Genetics and DNA Studies Classroom Kits
Demonstrate how the ability to taste a certain compound is based on heredity.
Model and explain wide variations that result from sexual reproduction, and identify cause-and-effect relationships for additional traits.
Examine forelimb skeletons of six species to identify bones with homologous structures and functions.
Study selected human traits controlled by a single pair of genes, stimulate an interest in science of genetics, determine phenotypes of several and same traits, interpret genotypes of individuals in a pedigree, construct a pedigree diagram for a single trait in their family, conduct a controlled experiment for that trait and discover and understand relationship of dominant and recessive traits.
Demystify staining, introduce students to the study of plant cells, cut, mount, stain and observe different cell types and tissue structures and develop microscope techniques.
Construct 3-dimensional models of basic components of RNA and DNA. Build nucleotides, link them and form a DNA model.
The teacher-developed DNA manipulatives kit is perfect for helping students to understand recombinant DNA technology.
In this series of two activities, students explore inherited traits.

|Time Range||50 min.|
|For Use With (Application)||To demonstrates the principle of controlling specific genetic characteristics through selective breeding|
Understand genotype and phenotype and the pattern and mechanism of inheritance for Mendelian traits. Investigate independent assortment of unlinked traits.
Develop a controlled experiment and collect data from self and family members, understand and demonstrate principles of heredity and the relationship of dominant and recessive traits and construct a family tree for a single trait in their family.
Demystifies the DNA/RNA connection in protein synthesis, replication, transcription and translation is modeled and experience how information stored in DNA is expressed as a finished protein.
Lab-Aids™ Advanced DNA Replication Molecular Model Kit explains the structure of DNA in detail.
Construct specific genes with the characteristic nucleotide configuration for cystic fibrosis, observe the difference between normal and mutant genes, understand how the disease can be diagnosed by two methods of DNA analysis, demonstrates amplification and PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) and simulate gel electrophoresis.
Follow the inheritance of a hemoglobin mutation through generations with the Lab-Aids™ Genes, Mutations, Evolution, and Sickle Cell science kit.
Rediscover Mendel's Law of Genetics, simulate gametogenesis and fertilization and develop understanding of purebred inheritance, hybrid inheritance with one allelic pair and dihybrid cross with allelic pairs. Understand co-dominance or blending and Law of Dominance and explore Law of Segregation and Recombination as well as Law of Independent Assortment.
Use chemical solutions to extract DNA from plant cells, observe some properties of DNA and understand the structure and function of DNA.
In this activity, students model the effects of antibiotics on the population of disease-causing bacteria during an infection.
NC0680663 AMINO ACID STARTER KIT 3-GROUP
NC1243151 CRIME LAB MISSY BAKER MISSING
NC1586503 LAB: EXPLORING DNA STRUCTURE
Easy PCR experiment, students will make billions of copies of a small amount of DNA.
Introduces students to non-isotopic DNA detection and Southern Blot analysis used in DNA Fingerprinting for a hypothetical paternity determination.
Study how karyotypes relate to certain genetic diseases.
Diagnose diabetes in three patients using urine glucose test and Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA).
Blood type, an inherited characteristic, has use in everything from forensic investigations to medical procedures. In this activity, students will learn about the genetics that determine blood type and the possible inheritance patterns and how they express themselves.
Students will participate in extracting DNA from fresh onion tissue.
