Product Details

Why are some people very sensitive to the taste of spicy food while others are not? Is this taste sensitivity inherited? This laboratory activity will explore whether the ability to taste various substances is genetic. Students will be involved in collecting class and family data on the ability to taste PTC. Students will then make family pedigrees and determine the genetics of PTC tasting. Taste tests for other substances will illustrate the complexity of the genetics of tasting. Includes worksheets, complete teaching directions, and over 400 taste test strips. Complete for 30 students working individually. Super Value Kit is complete for 5 classes of 30 students working individually.
