Hello all,

In this cycle, we completed the Unit 3-Genetics. Cloning and genetically modified crops were the key areas of discussion. After that, we started with the introduction of next unit- Evolution and Biodiversity. We also performed the practical based on separation technique. Paper chromatography was used to separate amino-acids and thin layer chromatography was used to separate spinach extract.

Hello all,

In this week, we started with the new sub-unit, ‘Structure of DNA.’ The structure along with the four bases of DNA was discussed. Students drew the structure in their notebook. After that the difference between DNA and RNA was discussed. Then, the semiconservative nature of DNA was emphasised. In order, to amplify DNA, PCR was discussed. Lastly, the activity where students made the DNA using origami was performed.
