This week we focused on understanding genetics, and some mutations that can happen by doing a giant cancer activity. In this activity we were all given cards with different kinds of cancer on them, and a description of the kind of gene and its location. We got together in groups and talked about similarities and differences we had. One of the big similarities, which I talk about in my previous post is that the more genes on a chromosome the more common that chromosome will be involved in a mutation. We also did a lot of practice this week with punnett squares, and chi-squares which has really helped me understand the statistical element of genetics. We also did an activity about crossing over, which just showed how much variation can be caused by the event of crossing over.
