To what extent are we our DNA? How can human genetic variations help us understand our past? Debbie Clark, biology and biotechnology teacher at Arroyo High School (San Lorenzo, CA) will facilitate this workshop and help us answer these curious questions. You will isolate your own DNA from cheek cells and use PCR to identify your genotype for a 300 bp transposon, Alu PV92. Using your data, we will determine your genotype frequency and compare it with global frequency. In addition to discussions about data analysis, we will discuss options for differentiating this lesson in your classroom, including using it to explore the work of Barbara McClintock
