A 1-year license to engaging software that allows the users to study the genetics of Drosophila, or fruit flies. Students perform F1, F2, sex-linked, and dihybrid crosses in 4 separate virtual lab activities. In each activity, the students determine the genotype of the generation being crossed. Then they cross the alleles in a Punnett square and make a prediction based on the result. Students then virtually conduct the experiment and examine the phenotypes of the offspring. A test follows each lab. Assessment questions about fruit fly genetics are available in editable PDF format for you to e-mail or print for your students.

In addition to the 4 lab exercises, a tool called the Fly Breeder™ is also included in this software. This tool allows students to manipulate the male and female fruit flies they are crossing by altering one or more of the 26 different characteristics available. They then conduct the same breeding experiment and examine the phenotypes and genotypes of the offspring.

Once you purchase the license, you will receive an e-mail with your log-in credentials within 24 hours. To begin, utilize the Teacher Dashboard and follow the steps to create a class. Then add your students and assign the lab activities to the class. You can track the progress of each student as they advance through the exercises. If tracking student scores is not necessary, you can also simply create Wildcard Users. This is all explained on the Teacher Dashboard Quick Reference Sheet.

As a bonus, eMind Animalcules software is included in your purchase for FREE. This digital microscope includes 24 commonly used slides from each of the 5 kingdoms: Eubacteria, Protista, Plantae, Fungi, and Animalia. Students can switch between low, medium, and high power as they watch many of the specimens move across the field of view.

This interactive, Web-based software works on all devices (computers, tablets, smartphones, etc.), allowing easy access for you and your students. Narration is also available on eMind software.

Choose from a site license or a classroom license for up to 32 users.
