Head into the lab for an in-depth investigation of genetics, the branch of biology focused on heredity and variation in organisms, and DNA, the acid that holds the blueprints for life. See genetic material with your own eyes as you isolate the DNA from a tomato in a test tube. Investigate inheritance and learn how traits are passed down from parents to children. Learn about dominant and recessive genes and play inheritance games to determine how traits will be expressed.

Learn about the biology of reproduction, the components of cells, and how chromosomes are combined and copied. Assemble a model to see the elegant double-stranded helical structure of DNA. Then crack the genetic code and find out how the different parts, called nucleotides, fit together. Analyze DNA evidence to identify suspects and solve a crime. Breed your own bacteria colony to experiment with survival of the fittest. Read about how mutation affects genes and how scientists clone plants and animals. Perform 20 exciting experiments with help from a full-color, 48-page manual.

Features:

  • An in-depth introduction to genetics and DNA
  • Learn how traits are passed down from parents to children and discover the properties of dominant/recessive genes
  • Introduction to cell reproduction
  • Peform 20 exciting experiments
  • Full-color 48-page instructional manual

1 star rating  separating the tomato dna not easy
Cait from USA Memphis TN
Despite multiple attempts, we have been unable to separate DNA strands from tomatoes.Save yourself the aggravation--- there are instructions for running this lab without this silly kit that make more sense and actually work!

5 star rating  Helpful!
J. Rhodes from Tulsa, OK USA
I used a few of these to teach a lesson on genetics to my students. It was more thorough than I expected it to be. Would definitely get it again!
