SCIENTIFIC CONCEPTS / PROCESSES

  • Study themselves and all family members
  • Develop controlled experiment
  • Understand and demonstrate principles of heredity
  • Introduction to Mendelian genetics
  • Construct a family tree for a single trait in their family
  • Discover and understand relationship of dominant and recessive traits

An excellent activity to introduce students to Mendelian genetics! The experiment is based on the transmission of a single inherited trait - the ability to taste harmless PTC (phenylthiocarbamide). The goal is for students to determine if they have this gene. They first collect data by testing family members for this trait. Next, they correlate and pool the PTC data for the entire class. Finally, the students calculate the random segregation data according to the Hardy-Weinberg Law. Background information about the Hardy-Weinberg Law is provided in a supplementary section. It also includes information about calculating gene frequency and the genetics of ABO blood typing are included.
