Genetics Sickle Cell Case Study


Genetics Sickle Cell Case Study

Logo for Genetics Sickle Cell Case Study
Sickle cell anemia is an example of a genetic disease that can serve as a vehicle for teaching many biology concepts. Using a case study approach, opportunities arise to make connections not only to various aspects of genetics and molecular biology, but to physiology, evolution and societal and ethical issues as well.

This resource on sickel cell anemia could be really great for a high school biology project. It always helps to connect what students are learning to something concrete.
