Participants in this project will survey phenotypic traits of classmates and schoolmates, compile data with students from around the world, and analyze data to determine if the prevalent phenotype is the dominant allele. The Human Genetics Project is an Internet-based project which enrichs a student's learning experience through "Unique and Compelling" applications of instructional technology. In particular, this project taps into some of the exciting applications of the Internet in education by having students collaborate in large numbers across great distances to "pool" large amounts of data. By participating in this project, students also have the opportunity to interact with experts online, use an online asynchronous discussion board to discuss project-related topics, and publish their own work to this project web site.
