The Science of Genetics & Crossing Crops | Lesson Plan

The Science of Genetics & Crossing Crops | Lesson Plan

Students gain an insight into how the ongoing advances in breeding have allowed Australian scientists to deliver better plant varieties to growers. Adopting the practical methods of a plant scientist, this resource engages students in modern plant breeding techniques. Students conduct a DNA extraction and try their hand at a genetic cross. This unit contains activity and practical based exploration of genetics and highlights the influence of scientific understanding.
