  • Elementary School - Grades 4-6
    P=Project   E=Experiment
    Use an online bioinformatics database to find out which animals currently have genome projects, which projects are complete, and which projects are still in progress. [E]
    Find out how big the genomes of different organisms are and determine which organisms have the largest and smallest genomes. [E]

    Plant Genetics Science Fair Projects & Experiments
    Middle School - Grades 7-9
    P=Project   E=Experiment
    Use the patterns of fur color in tortoiseshell cats to determine if X chromosomes are inactivated in a random or in an allele-dependent manner. [E]
    Using a Punnett square to help in acheiving the desired results when breeding Polish rabbits with specific color patterns. [E]
    Research genetics and genetic engineering [E] [E] [P]
    Determine if by crossing two totally different breeds of chicken, a Barred Plymouth Rock cock and a White Aracauna rumpless (no tail) female, the offspring would have the dominant traits of laying blue-green eggs, growing barred feathers, and developing a tail. [E]

    High School - Grades 10-12
    P=Project   E=Experiment
    Linking Expression and Function of the human gene FoxP2 in Adult Songbirds Using Operant Preference Testing [E]
    The Study of Fruit Fly Genetics at City High School [E]
    What is the Woolly Mammoth's Closest Living Relative? [E]
    Use DNA Sequencing to Trace the Blue Whale's Evolutionary Tree [E]
    Build a family tree for the primates, including Homo sapiens, based on the similarity of mitochondrial proteins by using the BLAST bioinformatics tool. [E] [E]
    Identify T. Rex's closest living relative by using simple bioinformatics tools. [E]
    Use a computer program on the Web to compare a DNA sequence from several human genes with the corresponding genes in other animals. This will allow us to infer how closely related we are to those animals. [E]
    Compare a protein's amino acid sequence in a couple of animals to infer how closely related they are to one another. [E]
    A Screen for Mutants in Drosophila melanogaster Affecting Triglyceride Levels [E]
    Repeat Griffith's and Avery, MacLeod and McCarty's experiments - demonstrate that DNA is the “transforming factor” [E]
    Quantifying Genetic Similarity in Relation to Geographic Distance [E] [E]
