Don't tell your students about triplet codons, reading frames, and introns and exons. Let your students discover these features of eukaryotic genes as they explore the map of the human β-globin gene. After searching through the nucleotide sequence to find the β-globin gene, your students will appreciate bioinformatics software that automates DNA sequence analysis. The Teacher's Map includes annotated features. Map can be used individually or by small teams of students.
Models in this Collection
