Suggested Use

This is an amazing set of genetic resources for regular and advanced placement high school and undergraduate students. in addition to genetics content includes cell biology, evolution, biostatistics, biotechnology and popular topics in genetics. Resources are clearly broken down into teacher, labs, careers and special events -ex. DNA Day. Lessons can be used as stand alone or portions included as part of an existing unit Or as an interest grabber at the start of a lesson. Materials could also be used in cross-curricular lessons with math, English or other subject areas. I highly recommend. 


Robin Cowen, Army and Navy Academy

This website is an excellent resource for 9-12 students and teachers, and some may even be suitable for lower division undergraduate science courses or those discussing science and society.  The individual resources are clearly divided by topic or application, and the easy site navigation is aided by its visual design.  College undergraduates may be interested in exploring the site and clicking through to links they are particularly interested in.

Andrea Phillott, FLAME University

This is a great resource for high school teachers interested in increasing their students understanding of genetics. I would highly recommend the materials here to all life science educators.
