Complete problems 2 & 6, using Hardy-Weinberg laws, from the “Problems and Discussion Questions” section in Ch. 27 of Concepts of Genetics.
Refer to the Brochure assignment. The museum is scheduling a speech at the grand opening for a group of high school students in attendance and wants you to write it.
Deliver a 700- to 1,050-word transcript of the speech you would give, including the following:
Discuss the factors that lead to genetic variations in a population. Include Hardy-Weinberg laws based on the problems you completed.
Explain how animal behaviors, including human behaviors, are governed by genetic inheritance.
Explain how the laboratory mouse has become a valuable model organism for the study of development and genetics.
What other animal models are used?
What contribution(s) has research using Caenorhabditis elegans and Drosophila melanogaster made in the study of animal behavior and population genetics?
Elaborate on the future of human disease diagnosis using the data from the Human Genome Project.
Provide sufficient examples to make the speech relevant to high school students.
Submit your transcript and completed problems from the text as instructed by your facilitator.
