Authentic Inheritance Patterns Kit

(backordered: in stock 3/21/24)


Product Details
See what happens when inheritance patterns walk off the pages of a textbook and into a doctor's office

With the Authentic Inheritance Patterns Kit, students take on the roles of geneticist and genetic counselor to determine the genetic disease of a hypothetical 6-year-old patient named Mason, the disease's inheritance pattern, and the likelihood that other family members have the same disease. To do so, student groups each examine 1 of 5 unique scenarios that include family pedigrees. They also explore how a disease can be caused by genetic changes in many different genes and can be inherited in a dominant, recessive, or X-linked pattern. Featuring reusable case cards and decals, this kit is perfect for teaching pedigrees and inheritance within an authentic, engaging medical context.
