Modeling the Regulatory Switches of the Pitx1 Gene in Stickleback Fish

Summary

A hands-on activity in which students interpret molecular diagrams and build physical models of eukaryotic gene regulation.

A hands-on activity in which students interpret molecular diagrams and build physical models of eukaryotic gene regulation. Students will review eukaryotic gene transcription, explore how changes in gene expression can affect body development, and learn how those changes, with the appropriate selective pressure, play a role in the evolution of a population.

Appropriate for: high school biology (all levels), introductory college biology
