Genome BC Education Videos Check these cool animations and movies to learn more about genetics, genomics, dna and more: See all of our videos at our Youtube Channel: Pakistan's Malala Yousufzai celebrates 16th birthday with UN speech Bill Nye the Science Guy Hey kids, hey teachers! Here are the Home Demos, the experiments you should try at home sometime. We call them demonstrations (demos for short), because we hope we already know what’s going to happen. But of course, doing it for yourself is equal to being told what should happen about a thousand times. So, try them! Keep clicking around and you’ll find the Episode Guides.

Genome British Columbia Make DNA Jewelery featuring Your Name! Download an Activity sheet with photos Materials StringBeads, in each red, blue, green & black Category As of July 1, 2013 ThinkQuest has been discontinued. We would like to thank everyone for being a part of the ThinkQuest global community: Students - For your limitless creativity and innovation, which inspires us all. Teachers - For your passion in guiding students on their quest. Photopic Sky Survey As a young boy, I treasured our family vacations to the central coast of Washington state, where low tides unveil beaches more than a thousand feet wide that run for miles. I remember being mesmerized by the surf and the water stretching to the horizon. For a young mind, this was a very big place, and it was here that my understanding of nature’s vastness began to take shape. Later, when I was about 10 years old, my family went to visit relatives in Sweden. As the speeding blur of the runway dropped away on takeoff and the many hours of flight ticked away — what felt like forever — I realized how much bigger the world must truly be. Then, in seventh grade, I watched the Eames’s classic Powers of Ten documentary, and the bounds of the universe instantly swelled beyond comprehension.

DNA from the Beginning - An animated primer of 75 experiments that made modern genetics. DNA from the Beginning is organized around key concepts. The science behind each concept is explained by: animation, image gallery, video interviews, problem, biographies, and links. DNAftb blog: It's the season of hibernation, something I've always wished I could do. Oh, to wrap up in a ball, sleep away the winter, and wake to a beautiful spring day – like Bambi!

Introduction To Heredity The 2004 publication Investigating Safety: A Guide for High School Teachers by Texley et al. has raised an alarm in the teaching community about the usefulness and safety of PTC taste testing. This has led to PTC being banned from many schools and districts - we believe unnecessarily. Yes, PTC is toxic. Genetic engineering: a guide for kids by Tiki the Penguin What makes you human or me a penguin? Genes. These are the instructions for how to build a body which all living things have. Genetics for Kids Gregor Mendel studied peas. Source Covering genetics for kids can help youngsters understand why family members who are related by blood may share similar physical traits.

PCR Virtual Lab Primers are short pieces of DNA that are made in a laboratory. Since they're custom built, primers can have any sequence of nucleotides you'd like. In a PCR experiment, two primers are designed to match to the segment of DNA you want to copy. Through complementary base pairing, one primer attaches to the top strand at one end of your segment of interest, and the other primer attaches to the bottom strand at the other end. 3D Animation Library Animations can be viewed within your web browser or downloaded for play from your computer. In some genes the protein-coding sections of the DNA ("exons") are interrupted by non-coding regions ("introns"). RNA splicing removes the introns from pre mRNA to produce the final set of instructions for the protein. Transcript: As DNA is transcribed into RNA it needs to be edited to remove non-coding regions, or introns, shown in green. This editing process is called splicing, which involves removing the introns, leaving only the yellow, protein-coding regions, called exons. RNA splicing begins with assembly of helper proteins at the intron/exon borders.

Rx para a sobrevivência. Para Professores These games, debates, and experiments explore topics covered in Rx for Survival. Appropriate for Grades 7-12 social studies, science, and health classes, they include pre- and post-viewing questions, procedures, student sheets, discussion questions, assessments, and resources. You can do one, some, or all of the activities in any order, and they can be completed with or without watching the programs. Introduction Help students make the connection between their lives, their health, and global health by making Rx for Survival part of your science, social studies, or health class. Each of the teacher guide's six lessons tackles a different global health topic — vaccines, vector-borne diseases, antibiotic-resistance, delivering health aid, the link between diet and disease, and how public health systems can contain disease.

Códon Bingo Cynthia Mannix 1994 Woodrow Wilson Biology Institute Introduction Codon Bingo is a stimulating game that involves deciphering the genetic code. It is a game designed for students to practice transcription and translation of codons. It has the advantage that it is a game that students enjoy while they actively participate.
