Mitosis: Mitosis project – Day 1

Today students launched in to the Mitosis Project.  After working through a brief starter activity (practice with an EOC-style unanticipated consequence question), students worked with their groups to make sense of their project assignment.  The Day 1 Activity Log was used to document student contributions and was turned in at the end of class.  Below are some resources for groups as they begin conducting research on their topic:

  1. Mitochondrial replication
  2. Chloroplast replication
  3. Binary fission in bacteria
  4. Muscle growth and repair
  5. Epigenetics and regulation of gene expression
  6. Homeobox genes in embryogenesis
  7. Limb regeneration in newts and salamanders
  8. C. elegans cell fate mapping
  9. Cancer and metastasis
  10. The effect of smoking on lung cells
  11. The effect of alcohol on liver cells
  12. Retrovirus infection
