Genetics in Action: Mendelian Genetics C-FERN Kit

$95.50 - $138.75

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 allow meaningful use of the chi-square test.
