Investigation: how do we know DNA is the molecule of inheritance?- examining three classic studies in molecular biology.-See Google Classroom for assignment.- Due Wednesday BOP.
DNA modeling challenge- understanding th structure of DNA-
1953 was an annus mirabilis for science. Here, we present five classic papers from Nature that describe and provide evidence for the double helix being the structure of DNA, and one from The Journal of Experimental Medicine that has been described as the "defining moment in nucleic acid research".

DNA extraction lab- set up BOP
DNA Replication- Video review-
LT: I will be able to explain to another student or to my teacher how DNA replicated itself.
Using the colored paper clips and Post-it paper make a model that you can use to explain the process of DNA replication.
HW: Genetic Twists of Fate- due Tuesday BOP- assignment guidelines in Google classroom.
