Blood types are inherited. Prepare a poster to show the different inheritance patterns that are possible. wpe2.jpg (10311 bytes) wpe3.jpg (8226 bytes)
Can red blood cells be used to correct a blood clotting problem?
Several blood components can be prepared from a single blood donation. Research how the components are made and how they are used to treat patients. Then present your findings in a poster or presentation. wpe5.jpg (12458 bytes) wpe6.jpg (8581 bytes)
