Genetic Disorders goes over the DNA mutations and couples each of them with a disease that people are affected by. Point mutation frame shift mutation, chromosomal mutations and sex-linked mutations are all included. Diseases like sickle cell anemia, albinism and others are also discussed. Excellent for AP Biology and Genetics.
This Bundle includes:
Genetic Disorders: Mistakes in the DNA code, DNA mutations Worksheets w/t Key
Genetic Disorders: Mistakes in the DNA code, DNA mutations Power Point

Texas Biology TEKS
(6) Science concepts. The student knows the mechanisms of genetics, including the role of nucleic acids and the principles of Mendelian Genetics. The student is expected to:
(A) identify components of DNA, and describe how information for specifying the traits of an organism is carried in the DNA;
(B) recognize that components that make up the genetic code are common to all organisms;
(D) recognize that gene expression is a regulated process;
(E) identify and illustrate changes in DNA and evaluate the significance of these changes;
(H) describe how techniques such as DNA fingerprinting, genetic modifications, and chromosomal analysis are used to study the genomes of organisms.

HS-LS4-2. Construct an explanation based on evidence that the process of evolution primarily results from four factors: (1) the potential for a species to increase in number, (2) the heritable genetic variation of individuals in a species due to mutation and sexual reproduction, (3) competition for limited resources, and (4) the proliferation of those organisms that are better able to survive and reproduce in the environment.
