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.
Unsure of what the steps of the scientific method are? Not sure how to apply the scientific method? Watch how we use the scientific method to explore the science of popping boba – fun juice filled balls that pop in your mouth. You can find more information about each step of the scientific method at https://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-fair-projects/science-fair/steps-of-the-scientific-method?from=YouTube.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, scientists knew it was a matter of time before new variants of the novel coronavirus, SARS-Cov-2, began to emerge in our communities. For a virus that mutates relatively slowly – picking up an average of two to three new mutations a month – how quickly these distinct variants took root would depend on how well we stopped the spread of the virus.…
How do weeds impact crop growth? Why should farmers be concerned about the growth of weeds (unwanted plants) in their crops? This video demonstrates a simulation activity found in the lesson plan, "The Science of a GMO."

There are load of terms to know about DNA, and in this video we explain all the main ones - genes, alleles, homozygous and heterozygous, dominant and recessive, genotype and phenotype. Along the way we'll see how genes and inheritance really works!
The passing down of traits from parent to child is called heredity and the study of how those traits go from generation to generation is called genetics. We start by learning what are DNA and genes and how they make us who we are. Find out more about the science of genetics.
The passing of traits to from parents to offspring by the genes of the parents. Who are you? Find out more about heredity on this episode of Science Trek!

Find out how GMOs are made by following the Hawaii Papaya GMO case study. The Hawaiian Papaya is a good example of a GMO crop that was genetically modified because of a disease that had a negative effect on the quality of a commercial food cultivation.
The Papaya Ringspot Virus was ruining Hawaii’s papaya industry. So scientists decided to use genetic modification to resolve this problem. GMOs are created to withstand certain environmental problems, like insects or diseases.
