Item description

Looking for some quality worksheets on gene expression and regulation for your senior biology students?


This resource consists of four handy, printable black-and-white Student Worksheets (PLUS Answer Sheets) that will save teachers valuable lesson preparation time AND help students to understand and/or revise the complex processes involved in gene regulation. Suited to students in years 10 – 12, Gene Expression and Regulation can easily be used as classwork, homework, revision exercises or even tests. It includes a fun, hands-on plasticine ‘Alternative Splicing’ modeling activity.


Gene Expression and Regulation covers:

  • difference between structural and regulator genes

  • homeotic genes

  • the lac operon: gene regulation in bacteria

  • alternative splicing: exon juggling and intron retention

  • epigenetics: environmental effects on the epigenome


Along with printable worksheets, a digital (PowerPoint) version is included here at no extra cost, giving teachers a choice as to which they prefer to use – taking into account the different learning styles of their students.


Gene Expression and Regulation is not just about answering questions. Your students will enjoy the ‘active’ nature of the tasks here, including:


  • analyzing diagrams

  • conducting Internet research

  • plasticine modeling

  • completing a fill-in-the-gaps activity using words from a list


Gene Expression and Regulation includes an Answer Key (PDF) with images in full color that look great on the big screen and can be used to facilitate good class discussion. Answers provided are also highly detailed, so there is no need to research or fact-check here; it’s all been done for you!


I hope you and your students find this product useful and that you enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed creating it!
