Biological Inheritance & Genetic Engineering Head into the lab for an in-depth investigation of genetics, the branch of biology focused on heredity and variation in organisms, and DNA, the acid that holds the blueprints for life.

  • See genetic material with your own eyes as you isolate the DNA from a tomato in a test tube. Investigate inheritance and learn how traits are passed down from parents to children.
  • Learn about dominant and recessive genes and play inheritance games to determine how traits will be expressed.
  • Learn about the biology of reproduction, the components of cells, and how chromosomes are combined and copied. Assemble a model to see the elegant double-stranded helical structure of DNA.
  • Then crack the genetic code and find out how the different parts, called nucleotides, fit together to compose it.
  • Read about how scientists use DNA sequencing to reveal the order of nucleotides in DNA.
  • Analyse DNA evidence to identify suspects and solve a crime.
  • Learn about the influential scientists, including Mendel, Watson, and Crick, who made breakthrough contributions to this field.
  • Breed your own bacteria colony to experiment with genetic engineering.
  • Read about how mutation affects genes and how scientists clone plants and animals.

The full-colour, 48-page manual guides your experiments.

Ages 10 and up.

  • isolate the DNA from a tomato
  • learn about inheritance and how traits are expressed
  • build a DNA model
  • breed bacteria to experiment with genetic engineering
