Genetic Studies,
family studies on inheritance

Genetic studies can be performed to identify the effect of a gene on properties and characteristics of any organism. (A gene is a hereditary unit that occupies a specific location on a chromosome and determines a particular characteristic in an organism.) We may perform genetic studies on humans, animals, plants and even bacteria. Every genetic study will focus on a different characteristic of the subject. Genetic studies on hair color and facial features such as eye color and shape of the ears are among genetic studies that can be performed on humans and can be conducted by Intermediate or senior students. 

 Project description:
The general purpose of doing these experiments is to understand the effect of genes on certain characteristics of humans and compare it with other environmental factors that may have a similar effect. You will decide on the characteristics that will be the subject of your study and then gather information.  You will finally compile the results and draw a conclusion.
