Grades 8-12. How do we inherit certain traits? Students explore Mendelian genetics through growing and pollinating F1 hybrid plants to produce F2 seed. Analysis of inheritance is based on segregation of one gene in the F2 generation. The experiment illustrates the principles of inheritance of unit characters, dominance, and segregation.

  • Observe inheritance of a single trait through multiple generations
  • Super-fast generation cycle of 35 to 40 days
  • Quick setup, quick results

The entire experiment takes only 55 days. Classroom Kit includes enough materials for a class of 30 students.
 
 
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Contamination F1 To whom it may concern, I am writing to express my disappointment with the Wisconsin Fast Plants 72-Hour Dihybrid Genetics Kit I bought in January of the present year (invoice number: 50130927 RI). In the kit the students are supposed to plant the F1 and P1 seeds to generate a hypothesis about the phenotype and genotype of the F2 and P2 plants, and then they have to plant the F2 seeds and accept or regret the hypothesis. Based on the information found in the teacher’s manual, the P1 and P2 are homozygous for both characters and, by consequence, the F1 is supposed to be 100% heterozygous (purple stem and standard length). The problem was that we got some green plants in the F1 when we weren’t waiting that. We had an appropriate place for growing the seeds with white light 24 hours the three days and, in fact, mostly of the plants grew well and mostly purple. But those few green plants in the F1 confused the students in the construction of the hypothesis. Also, we had the F1 seed in a container in a different lab table then the P1 (in another container), and we were observing how the students planted the seeds. There weren’t purple plants in the P1 (thinking in a possible mistake in the manipulation of the seeds), so we think that the mistake came already from the production batch.
