Sordaria Genetics - Advanced Student Laboratory Kit
 
Product Description

By: The Flinn Staff


Students prepare cross plates and cross wild type and mutant strains of Sordaria fimicola in this advanced genetics laboratory. Daily observation of the growing culture provides an opportunity to observe the life cycle of a member of the fungal kingdom. During meiosis crossing over occurs in some of the asci. By counting the number of crossed ascospores versus uncrossed ascospores it is possible to determine the distance between the gene for spore color and the centromere of the chromosome of interest. Students collect, prepare, count, and calculate from their own cross plates.
 
Kit includes reproducible student handouts, detailed teacher notes and enough material for fifteen pairs of students. S. fimicola wild type and tan mutant strains are sold separately. An autoclave, stereoscopes, light microscopes, and Bunsen burners are required.
