Description

Let this HudsonAlpha kit guide your students' investigation into mutation accumulation in cells progressing toward cancer. Using digital vignettes from HudsonAlpha's video Focus on Cancer, beads, and dice, this unique demonstration of chance and randomization lets students simulate the fate of a population of cells across multiple cell divisions. This model illustrates how a population of cells becomes more varied over time, and how those changes may lead a group of cells to become more cancerous. Students will learn

  • Multiple mutations are necessary for the development of cancer
  • The function of tumor suppressors, oncogenes, and DNA repair genes using multiple mutation pathways to cancer
  • The misconceptions about mutations and their function in cancer genetics
This classroom kit is designed for 32 students working in pairs.

FREE 1-year access to digital resources that support NGSS instruction included.
