Biology Bits

Biology Bits stories are a great way for you to explore biology a little bit at a time. We’ve broken down information into very tiny—bite-sized pieces perfect for learning.

Sooty Selection

Discuss ideas of natural selection, play a selection-based game, and take a trip through time to see how scientists of the past figured out just how a trait is passed from a parent to its offspring.
