Human Karyotypes Warm Up 1

Welcome to the electronic biology classroom of the 21st Century. This warm-up will test your knowledge of human karyotypes. You can obtain information for this activity using Mitchell's Cosmic Adventure, biology lecture notes. This warm up permits you an unlimited number of attempts to increase learning and test-taking skills. As a bonus, each attempt randomly generates new questions and answers.
