Human Variation—Genes, Health, etc.

“Race: A Bunch of Bunk” addresses DNA, genetic mutations, distinguishing features, and race. If you are teaching heredity or related topics, you can have students explore and investigate the relationship between genes and our appearance and health. A good resources is www.understandingrace.org. Follow the link to “human variation,” where students can read about patters of genetic variation, the science behind variation in skin color, etc. For example, if there is not “Greek” or “Italian” gene, why are most Greeks or Italians susceptible to certain medical conditions?
