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. Students make comparisons between base sequences of pairs of chromosomes from individuals who are not affected by CF and those who are.
