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.
