The Pangenome: Researchers are abandoning the concept of a list of genes sequenced from a single individual, instead aiming for a way to describe all the genetic variation within a species.

A genetic variation produces the piebald condition in white-tailed deer, not parasites or diseases. Piebald deer are colored white and brown, similar to a pinto pony. Sometimes they appear almost entirely white. This genetic condition is rare, with typically less that one percent of the population being affected. Often fawns born with this condition do not survive at birth, or if they do are easy prey because they lack the normal camouflage coloration.© 2007-2011 by Donna Tolbert-Anderson

All humans have certain genetic variations or “mutations” that can influence our health. One of the more well-studied variations is known as an MTHFR mutation; more specifically MTHFR C677T and A1298C. Unfortunately, not only is the concept of genetics difficult, but the terminology makes it even more confusing. This video clarifies what an MTHFR C677T and A1298C mutation is, in a way you can understand.

The best ideas come from randomly staring off into space at midnight. Finally brought this random idea to life. The kiddos loved our math review game today! Each group had a cup filled with ten review questions based on what we've learned in math this year. The students worked together to solve the questions one at a time. If they got the right answer, they got to go place one of their sticky notes on the board. (Each team had their own color.) I only gave them four sticky notes total. If...
