Genetics & DNA (Version 2.0)

Product Details

Your future Geneticist can head into the lab for an in-depth investigation of genetics, the branch of biology focused on heredity and variation in organisms and DNA, the acid that holds the blueprints for life. Your child can see genetic material with their own eyes as they isolate the DNA from a tomato in a test tube. They can investigate inheritance and learn how traits are passed down from parents to children. They can also learn about dominant and recessive genes and play inheritance games to determine how traits will be expressed. Your child can learn about the biology of reproduction, the components of cells and how chromosomes are combined and copied. They can assemble a model to see the elegant double-stranded helical structure of DNA. Then crack the genetic code and find out how the different parts, called nucleotides, fit together. In addition, your child can analyze DNA evidence to identify suspects and solve a crime. They can breed thier own bacteria colony to experiment with survival of the fittest and read about how mutation affects genes and how scientists clone plants and animals.
