Karyotypes were the topic of discussion today; the importance of them, why they are used, and what they can tell us came up in class. We then did a lab where students in pairs received a karyotype for a patient, analyzed it, and created a prognosis for the patient in question. The file necessary for this activity is entitled "Karyotype Lab" and is in the Labs/Activities folder under Unit 4.
For those students who are absent, use the "Karyotype-ABSENT" document in the Labs/Activities folder under Unit 4 to make up work that was missed in class.
The links for absent students are in the pdf and below:
