16 Genetics science fair projects

This science fair project was done to compare the ability of left-handed persons and right-handed persons in mirror writing. The experiment was done by comparing the time taken by left-handed and right-handed individuals to write some text in "mirror...

The purpose of this experiment was to see, by extracting DNA from an onion; if DNA could survive separated from other cell components. I became interested in this idea while I was watching "DNA: The Life Cell" on "The Discovery Channel" The information gained from this experiment will benefit society by seeing if DNA will be safe separated from the other cell components....

Students will work in pairs in the lab to produce a dragon from the random mixing of genetic traits. Each student will be a surrogate dragon parent. They will pick up a complete set of dragon chromosomes. Surrogate dragon parent partners must be of the opposite sex, therefore one parent must pick up the double X chromosomes while the other must pick up the X/Y chromosomes. The homologous chromosomes will...

The study of genetics/inherited traits is more than simply tracing back or predicting eye and hair color. Our genetic code is specific from one person to another. We do pass on other, more "unusual" traits, such as the ability to discern specific tastes in foods. PURPOSE: This activity was designed to involve students, family members, and selected peers in the process of determining whether an...

Spliceosomal (pre-mRNA) introns have previously been found in eukaryotic protein-coding genes, in the small nuclear RNAs of some fungi, and in the small- and large-subunit ribosomal DNA genes of a limited number of ascomycetes. How the majority of these introns originate remains an open question because few proven cases of recent and pervasive intron origin have been documented....
