Moving On


Now that we have finished our study of genetics we will now take on evolution. Theodosius Dobzhansky who made many important contributions to our understanding of evolutionary genetics said, "Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution." Evolution is the idea that unifies biology and maybe makes it a science rather than stamp collecting.

But now that I have piqued your interest I must temper it a bit. While you should begin to read chapter 22 on, we will finish the Drosophila experiment first. On Monday you will be introduced to the chi-square test and Tuesday you will be given time to write up your report. By Wednesday we will begin our study of evolution in class.

Also, there will be a twist to your TQT. I will be posting notes from chapter 21 and from those notes you will base this week's TQT. While reading the notes be sure to consult your text. You will find that the notes follow the text.

Mr. Baker
