First Grade Genetics & Genomics Science Projects (2 results)

What traits are heritable? How different is your DNA from a frog's, a mouse's or even your relative's? Can your genes tell doctors what is the right dose of a medicine for your body? These are the types of questions scientists are answering with genetics and genomics. By studying individual genes as well as genomes, the whole set of DNA belonging to an organism, scientists hope to get a more complete understanding of how our bodies work and develop better disease treatments. Whether genetics is new to you or a growing fascination, our collection of genetic and genomic science projects is sure to have something right at your level.
