It's Not Your Grandmother's Genetics Anymore!
Smith, Mike U.
American Biology Teacher, v76 n4 p224-229 Apr 2014
Genetics is perhaps the most rapidly growing field of science today. Recent findings such as those of the Human Genome Project have led to new understandings of basic genetic phenomena and even to increased confusion about some basic genetic ideas, such as the nature of the gene. These developments directly influence how we should teach genetics. This article considers eight claims typically made by introductory biology teachers and considers how they differ from current understandings. [For part II of this article, see EJ1044428.]
