With a good foundation in human genetics and molecular biology students are prepared for a continuation of studies in genetic engineering and may proceed with an advanced placement or college-level biology course in recombinant DNA. An advanced program would take an additional 32 lessons of 1 hour each with additional time allotted for prep time.
Although this particular class does not include special microbiology training due to the great cost involved, it is designed to initiate student investigation in this field of study. More advanced classes could continue with restriction analysis, DNA methylation, transformation by plasmids, and plasmid ligations.
(Recommended for Biology classes, grade 10 and up; and Advanced Placement Biology classes, grade 10 and up)
