Guide to Genome Island
Welcome to Genome!.  Genome island is a place to explore genetics. As Dr. Norval Kneten, Dean of Science and Humanities at Texas Wesleyan (Now President of Barton College) used to say "Science is the next best thing to recess!"   The island was designed to support genetics classes for university undergraduates studying biology, but anybody interested in science is welcome to come and play. 

There are four sections on the Island.  The Abbey and Gardens deal with inheritance patterns (遺伝型).  The Tower houses molecular genetics, human genetics and bacterial and Drosophila (ショウジョウバエ) genetics.  The Gene Pool, still under development, will have models for population genetics. The Terrace overlooks a mix of exhibits with animal models, and the Garden of Prokaryote (原核生物) Genomes.   The Atelier is the sandbox for students and others working on new activities for Genome Island.  Below you will find a full listing of activities in each of these locations.
