In terms of genetics and molecular biology, genome represents the hereditary information of an organism. It is present in a coded form in DNA or RNA. The Genetics and Genomics Science Experiments focus on knowing about the facts of DNA, genes, chromosomes, fingerprints, etc.
Genetic Scientific Experiments :
These Genetics and Genomics Science Experiments are basically of three types; Human genetics science experiments, animal genetics science experiments and plant genetics science experiments. These experiments involve research and study of various features and facts of plants, animals and human beings with regard to genetics. With the help of these experiments children get to know about the facts of evolution, heredity, ancestry, mutation, growth cycle, etc of various living organisms.
Some of the most popular Genetics and Genomics Science Experiments which are ideal for science fairs are:
- Study of chromosomes
- Study of DNA
- Baldness and genetics
- Dominant and recessive genes
- Study of genes
- Study of genetics
- DNA: The search for genetic material
- Genetics, geography and race
- Gene silencing/ RNA interference
- Genotype and phenotype
- Gene therapy
- Human genome project
- Identical twins
- Ion channels
- The pea plant experiment
- Pharmacogenomics and pharmacogenetics
- Telomere length and aging
- Wheat breeding, physiological and molecular
- XYY syndrome
The Genetics and Genomics Science Experiments are pretty simple to perform and can prove to be quite fascinating for the kids. While performing these science experiments kids will get to know about the facts of life. Children can perform these Genetics and Genomics Science Experiments at their homes with ease.
The plants or organisms which are the subject of experiment can be easily found at the garden or lawn outside our house. Kids can have a great time while conducting these experiments and at the same time learn lot of important things about genetics and genomics.
