SCI.9-12.L.4.2.1.a: Science

Genes are inherited, but their expression can be modified by interactions with the environment.

SCI.9-12.L.4.2.1.b: Science

Every organism requires a set of coded instructions for specifying its traits. For offspring to resemble their parents, there must be a reliable way to transfer information from one generation to the next. Heredity is the passage of these instructions from one generation to another.

SCI.9-12.L.4.2.1.c: Science

Hereditary information is contained in genes, located in the chromosomes of each cell. An inherited trait of an individual can be determined by one or by many genes, and a single gene can influence more than one trait. A human cell contains many thousands of different genes in its nucleus.

SCI.9-12.L.4.2.1.f: Science

In all organisms, the coded instructions for specifying the characteristics of the organism are carried in DNA, a large molecule formed from subunits arranged in a sequence with bases of four kinds (represented by A, G, C, and T). The chemical and structural properties of DNA are the basis for how the genetic information that underlies heredity is both encoded in genes (as a string of molecular "bases") and replicated by means of a template.

SCI.9-12.L.4.2.1.g: Science

Cells store and use coded information. The genetic information stored in DNA is used to direct the synthesis of the thousands of proteins that each cell requires.

SCI.9-12.L.4.2.1.h: Science

Genes are segments of DNA molecules. Any alteration of the DNA sequence is a mutation. Usually, an altered gene will be passed on to every cell that develops from it.

SCI.9-12.4.L.1: Science

Follows safety rules in the laboratory

SCI.9-12.4.L.2.a: Science

Uses graduated cylinders to measure volume

SCI.9-12.4.L.14: Science

Organizes data through the use of data tables and graphs

SCI.9-12.4.L.15: Science

Analyzes results from observations/expressed data

SCI.9-12.4.L.16: Science

Formulates an appropriate conclusion or generalization from the results of an experiment

SCI.9-12.4.L.17: Science

Recognizes assumptions and limitations of the experiment
