DNA Codebreakers

Year 7 & 8
Duration 1h

How much of our DNA code do we share with a trout, or yeast? In this introduction to genetics, students learn the principles of DNA, carry out key laboratory techniques to extract and observe DNA from wheatgerm and then consider some common genetic traits to understand why we are similar - but not identical to - our parents.
