A CIESE Collaborative Project

The Human Genetics Project

Is the Dominant Trait the Most Prevalent Trait?

Or put another way, does the dominant allele for a given trait show up as the prevalent phenotype in the population at large?

Ms. Ornovitz's class Springfield, New Jersey, USA

Participants in this project will:

  • Survey phenotypic traits of classmates and schoolmates.
  • Compile data with students from around the world.
  • Analyze data to determine if the prevalent phenotype is the dominant allele.

Join the project for a unique opportunity to study genetics as experienced scientists do! The Human Genetics Project is now open until June 25th, 2014, and you may participate at any time. There is NO fee to participate however we do ask you to register first.
