How do living cells reproduce and create new cells?
How can meiosis lead to variation?
How are traits passed from parent to offspring?
How can patterns be used to predict future offspring?
|Student Will KNOW:||
Inherited traits are passed from parent to offspring.
Inheritance patterns can be observed and predicted.
Genetic engineering may alter the makeup of an organism.
|Student Will UNDERSTAND:||
How the structure of DNA influences an organism.
How the process of meiosis influences genetic variability.
How mutations can affect genetic variability.
How messages from DNA are interpreted and transferred.
How meiosis and the cell cycle affect the number of chromosomes and production of gametes and somatic cells.
