Whatâs a gene? What exactly is a trait? And can I really remember what a chromosome is, or what it does? Some of our readers might be asking themselves these questions, and if they are, they will definitely want to browse on over the tremendously helpful and easy to use Learn. Genetics website. Created by a team of experts at the Genetic Science Learning Center at the University of Utah, the site provides basic overviews of various aspects of genetics, along with a number of fine resources (such as lesson plans and activities) for educators. The basics of genetics can be gleaned within the âGenetic Reference Seriesâ area, which includes a virtual biotechniques laboratory, and a series of features that answers some of the âbasicsâ in jargon-free language. Moving on, the âGenome Science Seriesâ includes features that address recent manifestations of genetics in public discourse and discussion, such as âStem Cells in the Spotlightâ and âGene Therapy: Molecular Bandage?â Finally, visitors can take a bit of the website with them if they elect to download one of their âBiobits in Depthâ, which address topics like cystic fibrosis research and the social issues surrounding the use of medical marijuana.
