Learning the Basics of Genetics

Whether you want to know more about yourself or the world around you, learning the basics of genetics is important. It helps you understand genetic health risks, helps you pick what pets you might want, and, if you were a farmer, it would help you grow the garden you want. Learn all about genes and the thrill of being an in-the-know gardener in Garden Gene Genius.

Teaching Punnett Squares

Teaching (or learning) how to properly use Punnett squares can be a hard task. Garden Gene Genius makes it easier. Students can read through how to set up a Punnett square in the Introduction and then use practice modules in the training garden to make sure they are getting it right. They can also learn about different types of inheritance in the training garden before they go play the garden game and test their knowledge!
