This is a PowerPoint presentation comparing the negative and positive effects of four genetic disorders: Sickle Cell Anemia, Cystic Fibrosis, PKU, and Tay-Sachs.
For example, having a single copy of the gene for cystic fibrosis provides partial immunity to cholera.
Really great way to open up a discussion of how mutations are not always bad. Helps students get interested in the mysteries of genetics and confront misconceptions about genetic disorders.
Several slide explanations are included within the Notes section of the PowerPoint.
Very eye-catching and full of gorgeous color photos and SEM images!
