Get to Know BioLab Fly
A Breed Apart

BioLab Fly
Genetics come to life as students study the fascinating physical traits of fruit flies and how characteristics are passed from parent organisms to their offspring. A wealth of mind-opening activities take the mystery out of genetics and introduce concepts that enhance students’ understanding of their world

Student Scientists Get Hands-On Practice With:
F1 Cross

Breed two pure bred organisms to see how dominant and recessive genes affect the characteristics of the offspring.
F2 Cross
See how specimens with mixed genotypes vary the results.
Sex-Linked Cross
Determine which traits are carried only through a particular chromosome and thus are linked with a gender.
Dihybrid Cross
Do a cross between individuals that involve two pairs of contrasting traits.
Fly Breeder
Exercise the mind with this open-ended activity while analyzing twenty-six different physical characteristics.


BioLab Fly follows tried and true educational practices as each student receives pre-lab instruction, thorough open-ended lab simulation, and post-lab reinforcement. A collection of printable worksheets is included on the CD. Students use the Fly Editor to generate flies with 26 different characteristics.

Learn By Doing.
Students develop reasoning skills as they observe parental genotypes, build a Punnett square, predict the characteristics of the offspring and test their prediction.

This step-by-step investigation exposes students to simple and complex genetic principles.



Interactive Log
BioLab Fly features a log that records progress and allows the teacher to track student learning.

In-depth Lab Experience.
In four detailed labs, students study the principles of genetics and learn about dominant, recessive, sex-linked and autosomal characteristics.
