Examine a Genetically Inherited Trait in the Classroom
The ability or inability to taste certain chemicals is genetically predetermined. Students can test their own taste responses using the specially prepared test papers included in this kit. They can then pool the class data and apply the Hardy-Weinberg Principle to determine the frequency of dominant and recessive alleles within the population, consisting of the class. You will get PTC test paper, thiourea test paper, sodium benzoate test paper, and control test paper (100 strips of each), as well as a teacher’s guide and student copymaster.
