Genetics laboratory manual
This laboratory is designed to give student an introduction to major organisms used for studying genetics. We will explore the classical and modern technique in culturing fruit flies in vials, distinguish male and female fruit flies, and identify various stages in the life cycle of D. melanogaster. To understand how the genetic material passed between generations, how gene expression may be regulated, and how mutation can occur. The students will perform the practical on onion root tip samples and garlic chive flower samples, observe the steps of cell division. Practical provides to gene map study also carries out in this laboratory through the structure of the polytene chromosome.
