Gene Expression and Regulation is a professionally created, visually stimulating PowerPoint presentation/PDF that will not just save teachers lots of valuable lesson preparation time but also help students to understand this important but often complex topic in biology. Suitable for students in Years 10 – 12, Gene Expression and Regulation can easily be used as both an introduction to a new unit, or as revision.
Gene Expression and Regulation covers the following:
difference between structural and regulator genes
why some genes need to be switched off or on
the lac operon: gene regulation in bacteria
alternative splicing: exon juggling and intron retention, including the role this process plays in producing the millions of different types of proteins in humans and other organisms.
The content in Gene Expression and Regulation is explained clearly and includes good detail (without being overwhelming). It also uses simple language that is generally easier to understand than the average textbook, making it accessible to as many of your students as possible. There are lots of colourful, easy-to-follow diagrams to assist the visual learner and facilitate good class discussion.
* Please note that this PowerPoint presentation assumes prior knowledge and understanding of the processes of transcription, translation and RNA processing/post-transcription modification.
I hope you and your students find this product useful and that you enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed creating it!
