Human Skin Color: Evidence for Selection
Helen Snodgrass describes how she uses BioInteractive's The Biology of Skin Color film and "Evidence for Selection" activity to show students how humans have evolved over time.
John Moore describes how he uses the short film The Biology of Skin Color with his college students to teach them about the nature of science and hypothesis-driven exploration.
Robin Bulleri describes how she uses the Got Lactase? short film, along with the "Inheritance of Lactose Intolerance" activity, to show her students how lactase persistence arose and how pedigrees and DNA analysis reveal patterns of inheritance of lactase gene variants.
Paul Strode describes the BioInteractive Click & Learn activity on DNA sequencing and phylogenetic trees. He explains how it teaches students about DNA sequence alignment, and how those sequence differences allow researchers to determine relationships between species.
