Cootie Genetics is an educational app made to be used with the "Cootie Genetics" lab through the University of Arizona Biotech Project.  

Cootie Genetics is a hands-on inquiry based activity that enables students to learn Mendelian laws of inheritance.  The activity begins with two true breeding Cooites of the same species that exhibit five observable trait differences.  Students observe the retention or loss of traits among the first-generation heterozygotes, hypothesize what happened to these traits and design an experiment to test their hypotheses by mating these first-generation Cooties.  With the second generation, students will see that the random selection of trait factors trait factors will create new and interesting Cooties! This fun lab teaches students how recessive and dominant traits combine in the Cootie offspring, Mendal's principles of segregation and independent assortment, and provides the tools necessary to construct Punnett squares.
