This unique set will help your students to develop a clear understanding of transcription, translation, mutations and genetic testing using PCR in the context of the genetic condition cystic fibrosis!
Using the real DNA sequence, the most common mutation causing cystic fibrosis is modelled in this colourful hands on activity. The colourful durable plastic parts make the science understandable in a tangible way.
The set includes parts to make two copies of the normal gene and two copies of the mutated gene so different combinations of geneotype can be modelled.
Suitable for 4 groups of students.
Time required: 25 minutes.
All components are reusable. Includes full instructions and class Powerpoint.
