RE 9.1
Examine

the
process

of and
influence

on the transfer of genetic information and the
impact

of that understanding on
society past and present.


KNOW

UNDERSTAND

BE ABLE TO DO



Genetic conditions with unknown causes/ cures
-

some causes of male infertility, cystic fibrosis,
Down’s syndrome, and muscular dystrophy



Inherited traits
-

eye colour,
chin shape, ear
lobes, and tongue rolling



Factors leading to cell changes
-

toxins,
carcinogens, pesticides, smoking, overexposure
to sunlight, and alcohol abuse



Vocabulary


genetics, condition, technological,
nucleus, cell, dominant, recessive, data,
traits,
inherit, environmental factors, reproductive
biology, gene therapy, genetic engineering,
population, disease, chromosome, gene, DNA,
transmitting, impact, influence, process



Parts of a cell related to the transfer of genetic
information



Examples of

dominant and recessive traits



How to observe properly, collect data, analyze
data



Family data of human traits



Saskatchewan and Canadian contributions to
the science and technology of genetics and
reproductive biology



How to research effectively from a var
iety of
sources



Related careers



That genetics is an area still
being vastly studied


many
unanswered questions



There is a cellular process in
which genetic information is
transferred



Who we are and how we look
is decided by our genes, which
come from our
parents



There are dominant and
recessive traits which impact
things differently when
combined in different ways



There are factors that can
change a cell’s genetic
information



Saskatchewan and Canada
have contributed to the study
of genetics and reproductiv
e
biology



Genetics has had a
tremendous impact on many
aspects of our world



We have to understand
chromosomes, genes and
DNA as well as reproduction in
order to understand genetics




Identify questions to investigate related to genetics.



Provide examples of genetic conditions whose causes
and cures are not understood according to current
scientific and technological knowledge.



Recognize that the nucleus of a cell contains genetic
information and identify the relationship among
chromosomes
, genes, and DNA in transmitting genetic
information.



Identify examples of dominant and recessive traits in
humans and other living things.



Observe, collect, and analyze class and/or family data
of human traits that may be inherited from parents



Discuss

environmental factors and personal choices
that may lead to changes in a cell’s genetic information



Provide examples of Saskatchewan and Canadian
contributions to the science and technology of genetics
and reproductive biology in plants and animals.



Sel
ect and synthesize information from various sources
to illustrate how developments in genetics, including
gene therapy and genetic engineering, have had an
impact on global and local food production,
populations, the spread of disease, and the
environment.




Describe careers in Saskatchewan or Canada that
require an understanding of genetics or reproductive
biology.



ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS

Why are we still so engaged in genetic research? Why is it so interesting? What questions do we still have?

How is
genetic information transferred and where does it happen?

Why are we the way we are? How is it decided? What do genes have to do with it really?

How do dominant and recessive traits work?

How can the cell’s genetic information be changed?

How has Saskatche
wan and Canada contributed to this field? What jobs are available?

How can I understand genetics? What do I need to know?
