Students take on different roles to learn about DNA and genetic diseases, including how a genetic disease causes a person to get sick, how we test for and treat a genetic disease, and how we help people to make better decisions regarding all the complicated issues involved with genetic diseases. This webquest, designed for high school and undergraduate students, is an ideal introduction to the concepts of bioinformatics, genetic diseases, and potential careers in science fields. The activity can be used in conjunction with a visit to the Koshland Science Museum’s exhibit: “Infectious Disease: Evolving Challenges to Human Health,” or as a stand-alone lesson
