Snurfle Meiosis 1.1 / Snurfle Meiosis and Genetics 2 – Diversity and Dihybrid Crosses

Snurfle Meiosis 1.1 / Snurfle Meiosis and Genetics 2

:: DESCRIPTION

Snurfle Meiosis : Snurfles, just like any other organism, must reproduce in order to continue as a species! But how does this happen? By the end of this game, you will understand how MEIOSIS and FERTILIZATION work to make offspring! You will also see how GENETIC characteristics are passed on through these processes and the connection between meiosis and genetics!

Snurfle Meiosis and Genetics 2 : When Snurfles reproduce, their offspring can have a lot of different traits (lots of diversity). But how?  By the end of this game, you will understand how the processes of CROSSING OVER, INDEPENDENT ASSORTMENT, and RANDOM FERTILIZATION result in increased diversity of offspring!  Also, you will learn how to perform a DIHYBRID CROSS!
