Work on project and final exam review.
Learning Target: I can describe how and why radiation impacts plant growth.
Pick up lab handout and unit outline by mailboxes and a red textbook.
Warm-up: Describe the difference between sticky and blunt ends that are formed by restriction enzymes.
Complete front and back of the first page of the restriction enzyme practice packet and Who at the Cheese if incomplete in class.
Learning Target: I can describe how restriction enzymes cut DNA and how to artificially replicate DNA.
Warm-up: What is the difference between therapeutic gene editing and cosmetic gene editing? Which, if any, do you think are ethical? Explain.
Finish work incomplete in class
Learning Target: I can describe the possible applications of CRISPR as well at the ethical concerns.
Warm-up: Describe the purpose of CRISPR in your own words. Use complete sentences.

2. DNA fingerprinting practice
Watch and take notes over Bozeman CRISPR video
Learning Target: I can describe the events leading up to the discovery of DNA's structure.
Warm-up: The name of this unit is "Biotechnology and Bioethics," describe what you think we will learn in this unit. Be as specific as you can.
