    High school lesson plan topics - Hereditary blood disorders

    The Clark Family Story: Tracing the Cause of Hemophilia (PDF)
    This lesson is for a senior level biology course and emphasizes the relationship between DNA sequences, mutations in DNA and the change in the resulting protein structure and function. Hemophilia A will be used as a real life example of how a mutation in DNA results in a change in a protein’s structure and resulting ability to function. In order to complete these activities, the students should have prior knowledge in DNA structure and mutations, protein synthesis, Mendelian genetics and sex-linked traits.
