Essential Questions: (3
-
5 questions per unit).




Why is it important for cells to replicate?



What patterns do various gen
e combinations produce in the
next generation?



On a molecular basis why is DNA the key to life?



What makes us different from each other while retaining all
traits that make us human?



How is genetic information passed on through generations?



Defend the stat
ement “Government backed stem cell research
should be continued.”



Evolutionarily speaking, why are pluripotent stem cells
important.


Curriculum Goals/Objectives: (Common Core or Essential
Standards)

Bio.1.2.2 Analyze how cells grow and reproduce in terms
of
interphase, mitosis and cytokinesis.

Bio.3.1.1 Explain the double
-
stranded, complementary nature of
DNA as related to its function in the cell.

Bio.3.1.2 Explain how DNA and RNA code for proteins and
determine traits.

Bio.3.1.3 Explain how mutations i
n DNA that result from
interactions with the environment (i.e. radiation and chemicals)
or new combinations in existing genes lead to changes in
function and phenotype.

Bio.3.2.1 Explain the role of meiosis in sexual reproduction and
genetic variation.

Bio
.3.2 Understand how the environment, and/or the

interaction of alleles, influences the expression of genetic
traits.

Bio.3.2.2 Predict offspring ratios based on a variety of
inheritance patterns (including: dominance, co
-
dominance,
incomplete dominance, mu
ltiple alleles, and sex
-
linked traits).

Bio.3.3 Understand the application of DNA technology.

Bio.3.3.1 Interpret how DNA is used for comparison and
identification of organisms.

Bio.3.3.2 Summarize how transgenic organisms are engineered
to benefit society
.

Bio.3.3.3 Evaluate some of the
ethical issues
surrounding the
use of DNA technology (including: cloning, genetically modified

organisms, stem cell research, and Human Genome Project
).

Bio
.
4.1.2 Summarize the relationship among DNA, proteins and
amino aci
ds in carrying out the work of cells and how this is
similar in all organisms.

Bio.3.2.3 Explain how the environment can influence the
expression of genetic traits.

Bio 1.1.3 Explain how instructions in DNA lead to cell
differentiation and result in cells
specialized to perform
different functions in multicellular organisms


Essential
Concepts:



How to interpret pedigrees and test crosses



Uses of genomics including the Human Genome
Project and applications of biotechnology.



Identifying cause and effect betw
een genes and
their relationship to inherited traits.



Interpret and predict patterns of inheritance



Assess the impacts of genomics on individuals and
society.



Examine the reactions of antigens and antibodies to
determine an individuals blood type



Analyze p
edigrees and state the most likely
inheritance pattern



Model how different combinations of genes
inherited by offspring can produce tremendous
variations in appearance.



Examine various human genetic disorders focusing
on new treatments, the inheritance, th
e diagnosis,
their application to biology



Explain how traits are determined by the structure
and function of DNA.



Interpret Karyotype



Identify different examples of cell specialization
and differentiation.

Literacy

Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of science and
technical texts, attending to the precise details of explanatio
ns or
descriptions.

-
Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain
specific words or phrases as they are used in specific scientific or
technical.

-
Analyze the structure of relationships among concepts in a text,
including relationships amo
ng key terms.

-
Evaluate the hypothesis, data, analysis, and conclusion in science or
technical text, verifying the data whenever possible and corroborating
or challenging conclusions with other sources of information.


Information and Technology

-
