About the Book
This manual was written with three main objectives in mind:
  1. To link important theories and concepts in modern genetics with hands-on laboratory activities.  True learning in the sciences always involves both thinking about science and doing science. In this manual, virtually every activity is explicitly linked to one or more important concepts of genetics. In this way, students have the opportunity not only to develop the skills necessary to become good scientists (observing, measuring, recording and analyzing data, and utilizing many contemporary techniques) but also to reinforce the concepts they have read about and discussed in class.
  2. To introduce students to a wide range of model organisms that are important to the study of genetics. Genetics is, perhaps more than any other field of biology, a discipline based on the use of model organisms. Numerous fascinating and wonderful organisms have been used to great success in genetics. Unfortunately, many genetics students only encounter one or two of these organisms during their course of studies.  This manual includes experiments that directly utilize seven different living organisms that serve as model systems for genetics research. There are also other experiments that use preserved material, DNA, or DNA sequences from additional organisms.
  3. To provide a context for students to learn and use techniques of contemporary genetics to ask and answer questions of biological significance. The activities in this manual not only illustrate major concepts of genetics but also encourage active investigation. In each activity, background information on the system and/or the phenomenon being studied is given. Background information and specific instructions for the use of relevant techniques are also provided.  In addition, a question or a problem is introduced, and students are instructed to use the provided information and techniques to generate data and arrive at conclusions. Furthermore. several activities, are written so that they may form the basis of new research projects, thereby encouraging further investigations beyond the scope of the class. In several cases, significant student/faculty research projects could be generated from these activities.
