Welcome to our home page for the Genetics unit. In your assigned groups, you will be given the opportunity to choose a genetic disorder from the list below to research and design your own wiki page about. Remember, the choice must be a group decision. If there is a genetic disorder you wish to investigate which is not on this list, please schedule a meeting with me to discuss it. You will need preliminary research for this option. I will be giving you more information in class and updated here about what I expect on each wiki page.
Cystic Fibrosis (Wiki)
Down Syndrome (Wiki)
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (Wiki)
Huntington's Disease* (Wiki)
Klinefelter Syndrome (Wiki)
Parkinson's Disease* (Wiki)
Sickle-cell Disease (Wiki)
Tay-Sachs Disease (Wiki)
Turner Syndrome (Wiki)
* Research is currently being conducted to determine if these diseases have a genetic basis. Therefore the assignment will be similar, although we may need to make some changes during the project.
