Circle of Life: The Beautiful New Way to Visualize Biological Data

Circle of Life: The Beautiful New Way to Visualize Biological Data by Martin Krzywinski. Clockwise from top right, the genomes of a human, a chimpanzee, a mouse and a zebrafish are arranged in a circle, with each color square corresponding to a pair of chromosomes. Lines connect similar DNA sequences, visually emphasizing just how much DNA we share with other species. Image: Martin Krzywinski/EMBO

NGSS 2nd grade - Animals Disperse Seeds and Insects Pollinate Plants

NGSS: Next Generation Science Standards - 2nd grade 2-LS2-2 Develop a simple model that mimics the function of an animal in dispersing seeds or pollinating plants. This packet includes: *vocabulary wall cards (could be enlarged for poster) *ideas and original resources for teaching an engaging lesson *cut & paste correct order practice sheets *comic strip style sequencing for students to describe the order


The Pangenome: Researchers are abandoning the concept of a list of genes sequenced from a single individual, instead aiming for a way to describe all the genetic variation within a species.
