AQA A-level Biology Topic 4.3 (Genetic diversity can arise as a result of mutation or meiosis)

Each of the 4 lessons in this bundle are fully-resourced and have been designed to cover the content as detailed in topic 4.3 (Genetic diversity can arise as a result of mutation or meiosis) of the AQA A-Level Biology specification. The specification points that are covered within these lessons include:

  • Base deletions and base substitutions as examples of gene mutations
  • The degenerate nature of the genetic code
  • Mutagenic agents increase the rate of mutation
  • Chromosome mutations arise spontaneously during meiosis
  • Meiosis produces genetically different daughter cells
  • Crossing over and independent segregation as events that contribute to genetic variation

The lessons have been written to include a wide range of activities and numerous understanding and prior knowledge checks so students can assess their progress against the current topic as well as be challenged to make links to other topics within this topic and earlier topics
