Lab: Make a Baby

by Robert Lucas

This lab provides a list of hypothetical genotypes for a number of human phenotypes. Students fill a table with their own genotypes and phenotypes, then cross with a partner, flip coins, and determine the baby's genotype and phenotype. Finally, they draw a picture. If this is a little too personal, you can have students create the mother/father, rather than using their own features. This resource is part of the Developing Biology course which contains units on Microscopes; Biochemistry; Cells; Cellular Transport; DNA; Photosynthesis and Respiration; Mitosis and Meiosis; Genetics; and Evolution.

In this lab, students karyotype certain chromosomal disorders. Procedures are as follows: Step 1: Using scissors, cut out all of your chromosomes. Step 2: Using the normal karyotype as a guide, match up homologous chromosomes and place them onto your karyotype grid. When you are sure that you have correctly matched up all of your chromosomes, please tape them down. Step 3: Using the internet or your book, diagnose your chromosomal disease. You many have extra, damaged, or missing chromosomes. Your disease will depend on your relative number and integrity (damage) of your chromosomes. This resource is part of the Developing Biology course which contains units on Microscopes; Biochemistry; Cells; Cellular Transport; DNA; Photosynthesis and Respiration; Mitosis and Meiosis; Genetics; and Evolution.
