These 7 worksheets of genetics practice problems will take you through an entire unit on genetics. These were written for my standard level Biology class, but would be appropriate for middle school and high school grades, 7 - 12.
Each group is given a long paper strip of DNA, the story of the missing necklace and directions on how to fingerprint and sequence their DNA. Scissors act as the restriction enzyme, cutting the DNA between every CCGG into varied length segments. As the segments are pasted into the corresponding rows on the sequencing board (imitating gel electrophoresis), the DNA fingerprint of each suspect will emerge. So, who stole the necklace? Be a crime stopper!
