Today we took a quick SWYK assessing what we know of genetics, heredity, meiosis, Punnett squares, and chromosomes! IF you missed today you will need to make up this swyk (lunch? after school?)...
Many of you still need to finish (start) your summary CEAEAEAL paragraph addressing: How has the decoding of the human genome changed our understanding of life and living things? Hopefully after today's discussion of genetic disorders (what causes them, how we screen for them, and how we can treat some of them) you have a better understanding of how decoding the human genome has changed our understanding of life and living things! If you still need more information about genetic disorders beyond the textbook pages 117-121 CLICK THIS LINK AND EXPLORE THE INFORMATION (hit 'home' and really check out all the site has to offer!). How about another INTERESTING LINK ABOUT COMMON GENETIC DISORDERS AND MUTATIONS. Wow... we sure know lots now!
Next week we shall explore genetic variations and adaptations and natural selection of traits! Hello Darwin!

Most science pictures I post are found from assorted Facebook science pages... too numerous to cite specifically and downloaded for "just the right time"... I am sorry for the poor citation example I am setting.
In addition the archives are primarily from my days as a ONLY a life science teacher ... 2020 has changed all that!
