Product Description

The best teachers of this decade are overwhelmed with a massive amount of internet resources available to them. Modern-day educators face the hurdle of engaging their students with up-to-date educational material, despite having minimal outside revision time to sift and process the mammoth volume of information. Modern-day educators are encouraged to master the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) required education and at the same time fulfilling the Biomedical Sciences Program (BMS) parameters. This course in biotechnology supplies educators with the tools to accomplish both of these missions. 

Biotechnology is a solution for feeding, cleaning, and healing medicinal world problems. It is identified as a mainline for the future of professional occupational advancement for a variety of disciplines including; agricultural advancement, industrial advancement, environmental solutions, and medicinal therapy. Career opportunities are endless. 

This course is designed for instructors to pick-and-choose the units applicable to their classroom specific needs. The course begins with a general introduction to biotechnology, including the definition, history, and basic applications in the field of biotechnology. This course also provides instruction to the scientific method. The course then progresses with a flexible teacher-ready curriculum guide from the basic background of the fundamentals of DNA, protein synthesis, reading genes and genomes, recombinant DNA technology, and evolves to the many disciplines of biotechnology; including agricultural advancements, environmental solutions, and an introduction to animal and medical biotechnology. The course includes controversial current issues involved within its biological application.
