Product Details

Don’t leave genetics experiments to chance! Guarantee student success with this introductory-level lab kit, which includes a detailed techniques guide. Drosophila, the common fruit fly, is as ideal organism to study the basic laws of heredity. Students will analyze pathway inheritance patterns by performing a monohybrid cross between wild-type and mutant strains.

Complete for 8 student groups. Wild-type and sepia Drosophila are required and available separately. Drosophila cultures should be ordered separately to arrive two weeks prior to the scheduled use date.

Performance Expectations

HS-LS1-2. Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms.
HS-LS3-1. Ask questions to clarify relationships about the role of DNA and chromosomes in coding the instructions for characteristic traits passed from parents to offspring.
HS-LS3-3. Apply concepts of statistics and probability to explain the variation and distribution of expressed traits in a population.
