Students can study the principles of genetic inheritance using virtual mice simulations.
Principles of Heredity
|•||Design and conduct genetic experiments using online simulations.|
|•||Describe and explain differences between monohybrid crosses and dihybrid crosses.|
|•||Develop an understanding of various genetics concepts, including dominance, recessiveness, genotype, phenotype, and Punnett square.|
|•||Apply new knowledge to more complex heredity situations, including blood typing, eye color, sex-linked traits, and human genetic disorders.|
