This overview summarizes important genetics concepts and provides links to suggested hands-on simulation and laboratory activities, discussion activities, and review games. These learning activities demonstrate how (1) understanding meiosis and fertilization provides the basis for understanding how genes are transmitted from parents to offspring and (2) a basic understanding of the roles of DNA and proteins provides the basis for understanding how genes influence phenotypic characteristics. The suggested activities help students to understand Punnett squares, pedigrees, dominant/recessive alleles, X-linked recessive alleles, incomplete dominance, co-dominance, independent assortment, pleiotropy, polygenic inheritance, test cross, and the interacting effects of genes and environment on phenotypic characteristics.
The attached file has the key concepts and suggested learning activities.
