Sequencing the Cystic Fibrosis Gene: A Simulation
Ninth graders determine nucleotide sequences. They identify those base sequences that are normal, those that are normal variants and those that cause cystic fibrosis. Students use DNA nucleotide sequences to determine amino acid sequences.

After studying DNA replication and the genetics of inheritance, this slide show is useful for explaining specific mutations that can happen and result in an illness. Sickle cell anemia, and cystic fibrosis are explained on a genetic level. This slide could be used to start research about various other mutations that lead to illness, or maybe mutations that do not affect the quality of life.

Sequencing the Cystic Fibrosis Gene: A Simulation
Ninth graders use this activity to simulate the sequencing of gene and to detect the presence of possible genetic defects. They use diagrams that represent bands of nucleotides in order to determine the sequence of a small piece of the CF gene.

Sex-Linked Pedigrees Worksheet
Three different pedigrees are displayed on this worksheet. Biology stars read the pedigrees to determine the phenotypes or genotypes for the individuals represented. The pedigrees and the directions are easy to follow. You will find this resource a valuable tool for teaching how to read pedigrees.

Autosomal Pedigrees Worksheet
Three autosomal pedigrees are printed on this assignment. Biology scholars read them and determine the phenotypes for several individuals and find which ones inherit different genetic disorders. This fundamental skill can be reinforced by assigning this as homework or as part of an in-class cooperative exercise.
