Lesson 7: How can epigenetics change your clock?

This lesson is part of the unit:

Lesson Description:

The goal of this lesson is to teach students about how changes to circadian genes can have physiological effects that may or may not have circadian phenotypes. Using the period 2 gene sequence, students will play the Epigenome game to learn about how changing the secondary structure of DNA can up- or down-regulate expression of genes.
