Title: Cells in Reverse
In this Science Update, from Science NetLinks, you'll hear about how scientists have reversed the process of cell division, a trick once thought to be as impossible as un-ringing a bell. Molecular biologist Gary Gorbsky explains how scientists have been able to reverse the cell cycle by manipulating the proteins that regulate the process. Science Updates are audio interviews with scientists and are accompanied by a set of questions as well as links to related Science NetLinks lessons and other related resources.
Standard(s): [S1] GEN (9-12) 4: Describe the process of meiosis and the cell cycle, including the hereditary significance of each.
Title: Cracking the Genetic Code
In this Science NetLinks lesson, students research and write a feature article on the Human Genome Project. They come to understand what the knowledge of DNA can tell us about ourselves and other organisms and species, as well as learn about the systematic study of the human genome.
Standard(s): [S1] A&P (9-12) 12: Identify structures and functions of the reproductive system.
