Eye Color: Is Blue Really Blue?

What determines eye color? After learning about different models of how eye color is determined, students will examine phenotypes from 16 subjects and predict if they have B (blue) or non-blue HERC2 gene. Next they will analyze PCR light cycler data and see if that matches their predictions.

DNA Surveillance Unit: Is That an Endangered Whale You’re Eating?

In order to better understand DNA fingerprinting and its real world applications, students will use a real genomic site, DNA Surveillance, based in New Zealand, to test whale samples against a standard database. This is done to monitor the sale of protected whale species in Japanese fish markets. Read more about DNA Surveillance Unit: Is That an Endangered Whale You’re Eating?

Decoding a DNA Sequence with Java

Students will write a Java program to read a DNA sequence from either the keyboard or a text file. Then they will display the protein sequence that is produced. Students will simulate the mutation of a single location in the DNA sequence to determine the effects of that mutation. Finally, students will look for the locations of a specific DNA sequence.

Process Coding Sequences of Transcripts Lab

Students will complete a Java OOP program that consists of six classes which represent a Gene, a Transcript, and Dictionaries. The Dictionary classes can be used for DNA to RNA transcription and RNA to Protein translation. The Transcript class will contain methods to transcript a DNA coding sequence into an mRNA sequence and to translate an mRNA sequence into a protein.
