Genetics and Meiosis
Genes are passed on from one generation to the next! Learn how this occurs through fun, interactive games and activities that explore genetics and meiosis! Learn about mitosis and the cell cycle too!

Learn about nondisjunction and model the process in this short interactive experience. By moving the chromosomes yourself, you will see how a nondisjunction alters the results of meiosis and can result in trisomy or monosomy. You will also analyze some karyotypes to identify evidence of nondisjunction. (Estimated time: approximately 15-20 minutes)
As a BioAgent, your job is to defend the world from biological threats, such as Dr. Vial's latest scheme. In this game, you will discover this scheme and learn how to use genetic engineering to make recombinant plasmids and transform bacteria. If successful, you will save humanity from Green Zombie Toxin! If not, it will be the end of the world as we know it!
When Snurfles reproduce, their offspring can have a lot of different traits (lots of diversity). But how? By the end of this game, you will understand how the processes of CROSSING OVER, INDEPENDENT ASSORTMENT, and RANDOM FERTILIZATION result in increased diversity of offspring! Also, you will learn how to perform a DIHYBRID CROSS!
Snurfles, just like any other organism, must reproduce in order to continue as a species! But how does this happen? By the end of this game, you will understand how MEIOSIS and FERTILIZATION work to make offspring! You will also see how GENETIC characteristics are passed on through these processes and the connection between meiosis and genetics! Check out the Worksheet that goes along with the game (courtesy of Ms. Pam Robinson)!
comets at your opponent, dodge asteroids, and keep the ball in play in this
fresh twist on the classic game of Pong, all while reviewing Meiosis!
This game has now been updated to work on all kinds of devices, including
touchscreen mobile devices. Note: this is a 2-Player game!
