Description:

In this virtual lab exercise, students can discover and apply principles of genetic inheritance by studying fruit flies (Drosophila) in an interactive online environment. The exercise allows them to order fruit fly mutants from a web merchant, mate the flies in an incubator, anesthetize flies for observation, examine them under a microscope, and analyze the data from offspring to determine patterns of inheritance. Notes and experimental data can be saved online in a virtual notebook and used to generate a report. The exercise concludes with an online quiz, and alignments to state and national standards are included.
