Biologists have built understanding of many complex biological processes, including diseases,by observing model organisms. Since all living organisms share the same genetic code, and even many of the same genes—fundamental mechanisms can be studied in one system and the findings applied across a wide range of species, including humans. The Genome Stories Guide for Teachers provides students with a deeper understanding of the importance of using model organisms.
