Biology Video: Elementary Genetics. Learning Objectives for this video:

  • Elementary Genetics. Learn about Elementary Genetics. Study the basics of genetics, from Mendel's laws on the segregation of alleles to the makeup of genetic material.
  • Review the experiments conducted by Gregor Mendel that led to the formulation of Mendel's first and second laws on the independent segregation and assortment of alleles.
  • Understand the function of monohybrid and dihybrid crosses, and learn how the Punnett square and multiplication and addition rules are used to determine genotype probabilities.
  • Discover the function of genes, explain the role of dominant and recessive alleles in the expression of a genetic trait, and understand that genes can be isolated and identified.
  • Survey experiments of scientists to determine the composition of genes: Griffith's experiments with transformation in pneumococcus; the transformation and fractionation experiments of Avery, MacLeod, and McCarty; and the labeled bacteriophage work of Hershey and Chase, which led to the identification of the genetic material of all cells.
  • Discover the many benefits of using online video for visual learning. Educational video for teaching the K-12 curriculum provides online learning for children and students of all ages and abilities. Using subtitled video - or video with closed captions - enables children to choose between watching, listening to, or reading each presentation whichever best suites their individual learning style. A wonderful option particularly for dyslexia and special needs education.
