Starting with the protein sequence, students work backwards to discover the ß-globin gene in our inquiry-based activity. This 15’ laminated map creates a powerful impression, helping your students understand how much information in packaged in a gene.

Student maps can be used by individuals or small groups and are available in sets of 1, 3 or 12. One teacher's map comes with every set. The teacher’s map features highlighted reading frames and mutation sites. All maps are laminated. This activity is intended for biotech and AP and honors biology students.
