    Central Dogma Card Activity

    Activity

    In this hands-on activity students review the steps of eukaryotic gene expression and learn how this knowledge can be used to treat genetic disease.

  • Stalking the Genetic Basis of a Trait

    Stalking the Genetic Basis of a Trait

    Activity

    In this activity students analyze data on the expression of the tb1 gene and use it to formulate an explanation as to how a specific difference in the corn version of the gene explains the phenotype of less branching.

    Film Guides: Evolving Switches, Evolving Bodies

    Film Guide

    These classroom-ready resources complement the short film Evolving Switches, Evolving Bodies, which tells the story of the dramatic transformation of stickleback fish as they adapted to living in freshwater habitats drastically different from the ocean.

  • The Making of the Fittest: Evolving Switches, Evolving Bodies

    The Making of the Fittest: Evolving Switches, Evolving Bodies

    Short Film

    (15 min 27 sec) After the end of the last ice age 10,000 years ago, populations of marine stickleback fish became stranded in freshwater lakes dotted throughout the Northern Hemisphere in places like Alaska and British Columbia. These fish have adapted to a freshwater environment drastically different than the ocean.

  • Regulation of the Lactase Gene

    Regulation of the Lactase Gene

    Click & Learn

    Lactase persistence results from a mutation that changes how transcription factors interact, thereby affecting gene expression.

  • Clockwork Genes: Discoveries in Biological Time

    Clockwork Genes: Discoveries in Biological Time

    Lecture

    Four lectures highlight the research of two scientists who have made groundbreaking discoveries elucidating the molecular basis of circadian clocks—the internal timekeepers that govern fluctuations in behavior and physiology on a 24-hour cycle.
