Carolina BioKits®: Human Chromosome Analysis Advanced Kit

Carolina BioKits®: Human Chromosome Analysis Advanced Kit

SKU: 173824NC

For a class of 30 students. Bring hands-on learning into your classroom and connect it to real-world human disorders to help reinforce genetics to your students. First, introduce students to karyotyping using photomicrograph pictures of human chromosomes for a normal male or female; these help build familiarity with chromosome structure and banding. Then let students explore simulated chromosomes as they attempt to learn more about numerical and structural chromosome abnormalities that exist in the population. Advanced Kit includes photomicrograph sheets, simulated chromosome sheets, chromosome sorting mats, and teacher's manual, plus it provides background on a wider array of potential disorders and allows students to manipulate chromosomes reflecting those abnormal spreads.

It covers 10 disorders:

1.       Trisomy 13 Patau Syndrome

2.      Trisomy 18 Edwards Syndrome

3.      Trisomy 21 Down Syndrome

4.      Klinefelter Syndrome
