Description:

This minds-on analysis and discussion activity guides students to think about how mutation and meiotic nondisjunction can result in genetic conditions that are not inherited (most cases of achondroplasia and Down syndrome, respectively). This activity also addresses the reasons for the rarity of inherited lethal dominant alleles.
