Genbank Blast

What living four-legged animals are blue whale's closest to? In the "Use DNA Sequencing to Trace the Blue Whale's Evolutionary Tree" genomics #science project, students trace the blue whale's family tree using the GenBank database and the BLAST search tool.

Human DNA sequences can be pretty similar, so how does DNA fingerprinting work? In the "What Makes a DNA Fingerprint Unique?" biotechnology #science project, students use online tools to investigate whether or not unique DNA sequences will generate unique DNA fingerprints.

Does an animal with a bigger genome require bigger cell nuclei to hold the DNA? In the "How Much DNA Can You Pack into a Cell?" #genomics #science project, students use online databases to see if there is a correlation between genome size and cell nucleus size.

Milk! It's good for the body and for plastic! In the "Turn Milk Into Plastic!" #science project, experiment with the recipe for making milk-based plastic, and then use the plastic you make to create beads or small sculptures. Fun kitchen #chemistry exploration!

How does a chick get oxygen inside the egg? In the "How Does a Chick Breathe Inside Its Shell" #zoology #science Project Idea, students investigate the pores of a chicken egg shell by experimenting with the weight of eggs before and after boiling.

How do scientists "read" the age of rocks? In the "Lichenometry: An Accessible Method for Dating Recent History (Geological and Manmade)" #science project, students devise an independent #geology project to use a ruler and some lichen-bearing rocks with a known history to explore further.

What kinds of stones store oil? In the "Rocky Secrets: Where Does Oil Hide?" #geology #science project, students investigate different types of sedimentary rock to see which ones would make good storage or reservoir rocks and which ones would make a good cap rock.
