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. Analyze 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-color, 48-page manual guides your experiments.
