Teacher: Boutwell

Course:                Introduction to Biology

Date(s): 9/8/14 - 9/12/14

Framework Competency and Objective

COMPETENCIES AND OBJECTIVES:  

BiI5 - Investigate the principles, mechanisms, and methodology of classical and molecular genetics. (L, P)

BiI5a - Compare and contrast the molecular structures of DNA and RNA as they relate to replication, transcription, and translation.

BiI5b - Identify and illustrate how changes in DNA cause mutations and evaluate the significance of these changes.

BiI5c - Analyze the applications of DNA technology (forensics, medicine, agriculture).

BiI5d - Discuss the significant contributions of well.known scientists to the historical progression of classical and molecular genetics.

BiI5e - Apply genetic principles to solve simple inheritance problems including monohybrid crosses, sex linkage, multiple alleles, incomplete d

BiI5f - Examine inheritance patterns using current technology (gel electrophoresis,pedigrees, karyotypes).

 

Monday
