KRAS: Cancer Mutation Activity
These materials contain a range of activities where students use real genomic data from the Cancer Genome Project at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute to find mutations in a gene associated with pancreatic cancer. Students mark the locations of the mutations on a gene sequence banner and record the results on worksheets. The activity is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation that introduces the topic of cancer: defining what it is, how it develops and how understanding genomic research can help us better understand the disease. The activity offers scope for the students to discuss the possible causes of cancer and the potential for developing cancer therapies.
