Lesson 8 of 13

Objective: SWBAT demonstrate their understanding of genetics by applying the concept of "X" chromosome inactivation to explain the variation of traits that are observed in a population.

Big Idea: An X-citing lesson examining "X" chromosome inactivation in female offspring. Students will create a unique calico cat that displays mosiacism to model this phenomenon.
