Gene Puzzles

Learners come to understand that in sexually reproducing organisms, such as humans, typically half of the genes come from each parent. Students examine a fictional pedigree and determine which gene is responsible for a given trait. The genetic information for individuals is depicted as a jigsaw puzzle. Terms that learners encounter include gene; chromosome; DNA; pedigree; genotype; phenotype; dominant; and recessive.
