Description

Today we began Unit 3 by going through a PowerPoint that introduced genetics (posted above). Genetics, of course, is the study of how genes/traits are passed from parent to offspring. I tried to keep it interesting yet a little vague. We discussed what kinds of traits were genetic without actually mentioning DNA. Today was really about setting the stage. For the rest of the week, we will dig into the details.

NGSSMS-LS3-1
Develop and use a model to describe why structural changes to genes (mutations) located on chromosomes may affect proteins and may result in harmful, beneficial, or neutral effects to the structure and function of the organism. Emphasis is on conceptual understanding that changes in genetic material may result in making different proteins. Assessment does not include specific changes at the molecular level, mechanisms for protein synthesis, or specific types of mutations.
NGSSMS-LS3-2
Develop and use a model to describe why asexual reproduction results in offspring with identical genetic information and sexual reproduction results in offspring with genetic variation. Emphasis is on using models such as Punnett squares, diagrams, and simulations to describe the cause and effect relationship of gene transmission from parent(s) to offspring and resulting genetic variation.
