OMIM (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man) is a website/database provided by the National Center for Biotechnology Information. It contains a wealth of information about genetic traits. This activity takes students through a search of the database to find interesting traits. Students are prompted to research the trait and determine whether it really is a genetic trait (some things are open for debate, such as the ability to roll your tongue) and whether the trait has health implications. Students enjoy accessing a real database, and enjoy finding traits that run in their family. The handout is four pages. The first two pages give general directions to the students, including a list of possible traits to research and a screenshot of the website to get them started. The last two pages is a handout onto which the students can record their answers.
