We have an exciting, new week talking about transgenic organisms! This means combining DNA from one organism into another organisms DNA. There are some helpful combinations and some that are a bit odd. Some may conclude that transgenic organisms and genetically modified organisms (GMO) should not occur and that humans shouldn't interfere with nature. We will discover how it all happens and explore the different organisms out there that scientists are working on currently. We also have our Genetics Unit Test on Thursday, so stay tuned for the review to pop up on the website.The week will look like this (approx) :

Monday, 2/10 : Transgenic notes and videos
Tuesday, 2/11 :  Make your own Transgenic Organism project
Wednesday, 2/12 :  Review for Genetics Unit Test
Thursday, 2/13 : Genetics Test
Friday, 2/14 : No School. Teacher Inservice Day.

We do have Parent/Teacher Conferences on Thursday night.
