  • Thread-topic: REF: Learn Genetics

There does seem to be a lot of talk about genetics in some of the
hybridizing posts here. I found this site in the Scout Report (From The
Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1994-2006.
http://scout.wisc.edu/) that may help you understand some of what is
being said. It even tells you how to extract DNA using common items
found in most households, though it does warn against using the family
dog, your little sister, and a few other such items. There does not seem
to be anything you can do with it once extracted, but hey, if you have a
spare little sister hanging around, it may be worth a try <g>.

For the really adventurous, the next listing was for a site to learn
calculus -- http://www.math.temple.edu/%7Ecow/.

Learn. Genetics from the Genetic Science Learning Center [Macromedia
Flash Player, pdf]

What's a gene? What exactly is a trait? And can I really remember what a
chromosome is, or what it does? Some of our readers might be asking
themselves these questions, and if they are, they will definitely want
to browse on over the tremendously helpful and easy to use Learn.
Genetics website. Created by a team of experts at the Genetic Science
Learning Center at the University of Utah, the site provides basic
overviews of various aspects of genetics, along with a number of fine
resources (such as lesson plans and activities) for educators. The
basics of genetics can be gleaned within the Genetic Reference Series
area, which includes a virtual biotechniques laboratory, and a series of
features that answers some of the basics in jargon-free language.
Moving on, the Genome Science Series includes features that address
recent manifestations of genetics in public discourse and discussion,
such as Stem Cells in the Spotlight and Gene Therapy: Molecular
Bandage? Finally, visitors can take a bit of the website with them if
they elect to download one of their Biobits in Depth, which address
topics like cystic fibrosis research and the social issues surrounding
the use of medical marijuana.
