Cut-off Genes

Investigate the relationships between different deep-sea organisms by DNA sequencing. A worksheet provides instructions for DNA sequencing and space to work. They simulate gel electrophoresis by cutting out paper "DNA strands." Modeling the process is the next best thing to the actual experience of separating DNA fragments. If you do not have the time or equipment, use this activity during your lessons on heredity and ancestral relationships.
