Head into the lab for an in-depth investigation of genetics, the branch of biology focused on heredity and variation in organisms, and DNA, the acid that holds the blueprints for life. See genetic material with your own eyes as you isolate the DNA from a tomato in a test tube. Investigate inheritance and learn how traits are passed down from parents to children. Learn about dominant and recessive genes and play inheritance games to determine how traits will be expressed.

Learn about the biology of reproduction, the components of cells, and how chromosomes are combined and copied. Assemble a model to see the elegant double-stranded helical structure of DNA. Then crack the genetic code and find out how the different parts, called nucleotides, fit together to compose it. Read about how scientists use DNA sequencing to reveal the order of nucleotides in DNA.

Analyze DNA evidence to identify suspects and solve a crime. Learn about the influential scientists, including Mendel, Watson, and Crick, who made the breakthrough contributions to this field.

Breed your own bacteria colony to experiment with genetic engineering. The full-color, 48-page manual guides your experiments.


Thames & Kosmos Genetics & DNA Kit

Did you know that the ability to do the Vulcan salutation with your fingers is actually a heritable trait? With 20 experiments on biological inheritance, the Thames & Kosmos Genetics & DNA Kit is a wide-encompassing primer on all things genetic. Young adults can breed bacteria to experiment with genetic engineering, isolate the DNA of a tomato, build a DNA model, and find out how to analyze DNA to solve a crime. The 48-page manual includes information on the history of genetic research, cloning, and how sequencing is done.
