How Do You Introduce a Topic in Genetics?

Genetics has always captivated the curious minds of humans. From the color of our eyes to our susceptibility to diseases, the intricate workings of our genetic material play a vital role in shaping who we are. The study of genetics allows us a glimpse into the inner workings of life itself, revealing the incredible complexity […]

How Long Did Dolly the Sheep Live?

Dolly the sheep captivated the world when she became the first mammal successfully cloned from an adult somatic cell in 1996. Born on July 5, 1996, her existence challenged our perceptions of biology, raising questions about the ethical implications and scientific boundaries. One aspect that often sparks curiosity is the length of Dolly’s life. In […]

What is Gene Cloning and How Does It Work?

Gene cloning is a powerful technique that allows scientists to make multiple copies of a single gene. It is central to many modern biological research applications, including genetic engineering, gene therapy, and the production of pharmaceuticals. This article will explain gene cloning and how it works and explore real-world applications. What is Gene Cloning? Gene […]

How was Dolly the Sheep Cloned?

Cloning – the process of producing similar genetic copies of an organism – is a fascinating subject that has been studied for decades. While it might seem like science fiction, cloning is much more than just a topic of fictional books and movies. In 1996, the world was introduced to Dolly the sheep – the […]

What are Some Examples of How Gene Cloning is Used?

Cloning is the process bioscientists use to make exact copies of living things. It is possible to clone genes, cells, tissues, and even whole animals, like the famous cloned beagles cloned from skin cells by scientists at Chungnam National University in South Korea in 2022. Cloning is also a process that occurs naturally. Bacteria, for […]

3 Types of Essential Tools for High School Science Experiments

Modern Biology provides all the extras you need for dozens of experiments that give your students hands-on, memorable experiences doing science. With Modern Biology, you can make abstract concepts come to life as your students manipulate real DNA, determine the size of molecules with electrophoresis, or even perform genetic engineering to create a bacterium that […]

How to Make Science Class Relevant to Students’ Lives

How do you turn your students to science in their everyday lives? How do you help your students understand why science is important for their personal futures? There’s actually quite a bit of academic research on this topic. Some of the keys to making science class relevant to students’ lives may surprise you. Of course, […]

How To Engage Students With Interactive Science Lessons

Making science class your students’ favorite hour of the day doesn’t have to be hard. Sure, many science teachers have their students sit at their desks, read their books, and watch some mp3s that illustrate topics they need to know for the test. But you can inspire even students who hate science to love science […]

Why Are The Genetics Of Plants Important?

Predicting phenotype from genotype is the fundamental challenge of genetics. In agriculture, understanding how genetics of plants determines — and doesn’t determine — how important crops respond to variations in soil, moisture, fertilizer, pests, and weather, so farmers can grow the food that sustains the world. The importance of understanding the genetics of plants has […]

What is the Effect of Temperature on Enzymatic Reaction?

Modern Biology offers students a hands-on introduction to the role of enzymes in plant development with IND-22: Characterization of Peroxidases in Plants. As with every experiment with Modern Biology, you will find everything you need for each experiment, other than general lab supplies with the complete kits we provide. But how do you introduce this […]
