Grade 11 Biology Class: Gene Mutation Posters

Recently, students from 11th Grade Biology designed posters on the different types of gene mutation. Using their knowledge of gene structure, function and mechanism, the students worked in groups organized by Ms. Zhou, and presented their posters. 

There are various kinds of gene mutation, such as point mutation and frameshift mutation, which result in different effects. Some gene mutations lead to abnormal protein structure, which will induce genetic disorders, including Alzheimers, diabetes and sickle-cell disease. During the presentation, the students helped clarify what exactly a mutation is to the other students.
