The purpose with this module is to give you a better understanding on how genes function in organisms.it will expose you to Mendel’s breeding experiments, diseases that are triggered by genetic factors as well as provide knowledge on crop breeding and improvement in human health. The learning experiences you are about to encounter in this module will also serve as a foundation for further studies in advanced molecular biology and biochemistry. The module has been designed in such a way that your personal study skills will enable you work more effectively through the learning and assessment tasks. Although you might not have direct access to a laboratory where you would be able to study cells microscopically, the module will prepare you for such encounter as well as the application of the science process skills in the science classroom. We will also suggest a number of alternative options to practical work to you in this module.
