Steam Week 2021 "Omic sciences go to school", this week at Agustinos

Steam Week 2021 “Omic sciences go to school”, this week at Agustinos

2022 is the birthday of Gregor Johann Mendel, the father of genetics, 200 years after his birth! And this week, it will be celebrated by the Colegio San Agustín de Calahorra With the project “OMIC SCIENCES GO TO SCHOOL”

Gregor Johann Mendel He is the discoverer of the basic principles of genetics and the founder of the world-famous genetics. He was an Augustinian priest and abbot of the Augustinian monastery at Old Brno in the Czech Republic.

They want to pass on genomics to young and old, this is how this project was born, whose main goal is to bring genomics closer to students Infant, Primary, ESO and Baccalaureate.

A person’s instruction book contains 3.055 million characters, A, T, G and C And the hive operation manual, folded inside, is basically a file DNA is a huge molecule, about two meters long.

First things first, let’s talk about genetics

Before we can get into the details, a little genetics will go a long way (I know, I know…). Back in the sciences class, let’s remember that genes are bits of information that encode everything from “having curly hair” to “making a new muscle cell”; Basically, they are the body’s instruction manual. Genes are what make up our DNA and the genome is our complete set of DNA. When the information encoded in our genes is activated, it is called gene expression. While we can’t change our genes, we can change our gene expression by doing things like exercising, sleeping, or in our area of ​​interest, eating and so on.
