Genetics in Action: Mendelian Genetics C-FERN Kit Replacement Set

(in stock)


Students visualize basic principles of Mendelian inheritance in C-FERN® by following the segregation of a visible marker, polka dot, in both the F1 gametophyte and F2 sporophyte generations. Students sow spores of an F1 hybrid (wild type x polka dot) to produce F1 gametophytes. By adding water to mature F1 gametophytes, students visualize random fertilization events that produce the F2 sporophyte generation. The large sample numbers provided from class and individual data sets allow meaningful use of the chi-square test.

Includes materials for 30 students. Experiment time is 14 to 28 days. Reusable with Replacement Set.
