Map of the Human ß-Globin Gene©

Product Code: BGGM


Quantity: - +

You will astonish your students with how much information is in one gene just by unrolling this 15 foot map in the classroom.

⚠  Warning


Students often wonder if all the DNA in a gene is a code for a protein. Working in teams or small groups, they answer their own question while getting a glimpse of bioinformatics, that is the study of information DNA encodes. As they collaborate, students will:

  • Initiate their investigation by examining the amino acid sequence of the ß-globin gene
  • Locate reading frames
  • Utilize triplet codons
  • Discover introns and exons
Once students have grasped these eukaryotic gene features, you can examine landmark amino acids including: Glu6 site of a sickle cell mutation, His63 the distal histidine, and His92 the proximal histidine that binds the heme group. All maps, including the teacher key, are laminated to allow for years of use.

Student maps can be used by individuals or small groups and are available in combo sets of 1, 3 or 12. One teacher’s map comes with every combo. The teacher’s map features highlighted reading frames and mutation sites. Teachers’ notes, instructions, and student handout are provided. All maps are laminated.
