Demonstrate Fruit Fly Genetics Without Live Flies and Cultures
A series of simple activities, Fruit Fly Genetics Kit allows students to perform Drosophilia melanogaster crosses using printed plastic pieces of four types of fruit fly, male and female. Students observe and simulate sex determination, single factor inheritance, double factor inheritance, sex linkage, dominance, and recessiveness. Fifteen sheets of snap apart flies enable ease of manipulation and practice with genetic crosses without the hassle of live Drosophilia cultures. Includes material for six setups, a teacher’s guide with instructions.
