Sickle Cell DNA

This site offers an interactive animation on sickle cell DNA. The video provides information about genetic counselors. Genetic counselors aid individuals in becoming aware of genetic disorders and they counsel individuals that may be carriers or at risk for an inherited disease. Details about amino acids, DNA, proteins, and sickle cell anemia are explained. There are also various tools on this site that allow one to practice DNA base pairing, amino acid interactions, "normal" protein segmentation, sickle cell protein segmentation, and Punnett square construction.
