Super Genomics to the Rescue: Explaining and Treating Neurological Based Ailments!

Unit 7: Genetics and the Brain
Lesson 6 of 6

Objective: Students will analyze models of altered proteins and scripts from a genetic code to construct an explanation for the basis and treatment of a rare neurological disorder.

Big Idea: The Human Genome Project provides us access to individual genetic defects, which allows for us to better understand the molecular protein products which serve as the crux of neurological diseases.
