Speaking of Teach.Genetics



You may notice it's been redesigned! You'll still find all of your favorite downloadable activities, plus featured modules, additional tools and resources for teachers, and more explicit connections to corresponding content on the Learn.Genetics website.



See it<http://r.mailer.gslcutah.org/c1itw2u598crd.html>










Coming Soon



Two new supplemental curriculum modules:

Metabolism: From Food to Fuel follows food molecules through the process of digestion and shows how cells use nutrients for building, burning, and storing.

Memory, Attention, and Distraction explores the brain's ability to process and store incoming information. See a teaser here<http://r.mailer.gslcutah.org/c1itw3ml98crd.html> for one of the activities.

We will be announcing their launch soon!

Plant Genomics - Research Experience for Teachers

Passionate about genetics? Want to become familiar with all the current advances in the field of genomics? Want a hands on research experience? This summer the Udall Lab in the Plant and Wildlife Sciences department at BYU will be hosting a five-week research experience for teachers in plant genomics. This is part of an NSF funded project focusing on Cotton genomics. This is a great opportunity to gain hands on research experience in the exciting fields of molecular biology, evolution, genetics, genomics, and bioinformatics that you can bring back to your classroom.

Attached are program details. If you are interested in applying please fill out application by March 1 here: http://goo.gl/forms/tE3Bn6T0St

If you have any questions, please contact lindsay_chaney at byu.edu<mailto:lindsay_chaney at byu.edu>
