A lesson that requires students to transcribe and translate portions of the wild-type and mutant rock pocket mouse Mc1r genes and compare sequences to identify the locations and types of mutations responsible for the coat color variation described in the film.
To accompany the lecture series Evolution: Constant Change and Common Threads.
This guide correlates all the resources available on the Holiday Lectures on Science DVDs and throughout the BioInteractive.org website to specific Big Ideas, Enduring Understandings, and Essential Knowledge threads of the new AP® Biology Curriculum Framework.
Topics include: PCR, DNA Sequencing, Genetic Engineering, and Microarray. This guide includes multiple classroom-ready worksheets to accompany HHMI’s virtual labs.
Topics include: Gene expression, RNA structure and function, transcription, RNA processing, translation, and post-translational events.
Topics include: Gene regulation mechanisms and examples, gene regulation and human disease, and RNA interference.
A hands-on activity in which students interpret molecular diagrams and build physical models of eukaryotic gene regulation.
The poster from the 2006 Holiday Lectures on Science, Potent Biology: Stem Cells, Cloning, and Regeneration, illustrates the role of stem cells during human embryonic development.
