Analyzing DNA in a High School Laboratory: Students study the genetics of sage grouse

by: Steve Pelligrini

Students learn a variety of scientific concepts while studying the genetics of sage grouse. In this project students learn that good science relies on carefully collected data and logical interpretation of that data. The author and students gained a vast understanding about the molecular basis of heredity, and how, through time, the evolutionary process causes measurable differences in the DNA of organisms.
