Talking about applied genetics or Genetic Engineering, I must absolutely reccomend this web page. Genetic Science Learning Center (2010, March 14) Teach.Genetics (TM). Learn.Genetics. Retrieved March 14, 2010, from http://teach.genetics.utah.edu/

To review the main concepts about genetics that we have studied you can follow this tour of the basics to answer the essential questions as What is a gene? What is DNA? What is a Chromosone? What is a trait? What is a protein? and what is Heredity?

You can try  making a karyotype and here you can build a DNA molecule

Then I recommend you these games or interactive activities about genetic engineering:


  • For example, about cloning

WHAT IS CLONING ?

CLICK AND CLONE

IS IT CLONING ?  OR NOT ?

  • About Stem Cells:

WHAT IS A STEM CELL ?

WHAT ARE SOME DIFFERENT TYPES OF STEM CELLS ?

  • About gene therapy:

SPACE DOCTOR you sohuld also check (TOOLS OF THE TRADE)

CYSTIC FIBROSIS: CASE STUDY

  • How  to make GMOs

Transgenic manipulation

  • About genetic engineering lab technics:

PCR Virtual Lab

Gel Electrophoresis Virtual Lab

DNA Extraction Virtual Lab

DNA Microaarray Virtual Lab

  • An also about such an interesting subject as Epigenetics:

THE EPIGENOME AT A GLANCE

GENE CONTROL

From different web sites you can also check this  flash  explanation about how to clone a gene or another similar one here where restriction enzymes action is well explained.

Hereby a puzzle game plus information  to understand what GMOs are and how they are obtained.
