Head into the Thames and Kosmos' Genetics and DNA lab for an exciting investigation of heredity and DNA, the acid that holds the blueprints for life. See genetic material with your own eyes as you isolate the DNA from a tomato in a test tube. Investigate inheritance and learn how traits are passed down from parents to children.
Learn about biology of reproduction, the components of cells, and how chromosomes are combined and copied. Assemble a model to see the elegant double-stranded helical structure of DNA. Then crack the genetic code and find out how the different parts fit together to compose it.
Analyze DNA evidence to identify suspects and solve a crime. Learn about the influential scientists who made breakthrough contributions to this field.
Read about how mutation affects genes and how scientists clone plants and animals. The full-color, 48-page manual guides your experiments. Made in Germany.
