Genetics Unit – Lesson 2

Please review Genetics Unit Lesson 2 to learn how DNA copies itself.  Note the complex molecular machinery required to simultaneously copy DNA in both the 5′ to 3′ direction, as well as in the 3′ to 5′ direction.  For more on the mechanism, read about Okazaki fragments.

Remember, the Biology Task was due yesterday, so please see me if you have not yet submitted your final draft.  Also, the DNA transcription project is due this Friday.

Genetics Unit – Lesson 1

Big day today!  Tasks are due – please submit to Ms. H’s Dropbox account in your designated class folder.  Students who need additional time must check in with me to create a plan for success.

We are starting a new unit on genetics today.  Why genetics?  Because a thorough understanding of genetics is central to understanding biology today.  To discuss heredity, evolution, medicine, and biotechnology, we need a common understanding of genetics.   Please review our first lesson (Genetics Unit Lesson 1 140113) and work together with your project teammates to complete the Genetics Unit Assignment 1 by this Friday.
