Solving Genetic Mysteries with Online Tools and Family Histories!
February 23 @ 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Event run by Indian Valley Public Library. Please email Nicole Husbands with any questions. Thank you!
Did you know that there is a worldwide database of genetic information that is free for anyone to use? In this workshop students will learn about the free technologies available to examine genes and visualize a family tree!
You will learn how to use online tools to create a family tree (Progeny), learn how to search a set of medical symptoms to find the genetic cause (OMIM), and search the human genome for genetic changes that can cause medical symptoms (Human Genome Browser).
Note: Participants will be checked in at the front door between 5:10 pm and 5:30 pm. Students WILL NOT be allowed to enter after 5:30. Materials and dinner will be provided.
