|DNA Technology & Biotechnology Neo/LAB|
Study the latest techniques and applications of biotechnology - in a "virtual" lab!
Your students will conduct a series of computer-based investigations to simulate such cutting- edge techniques as electrophoresis, DNA fingerprinting and bacterial transformation. They will also learn about the techniques scientists use to manipulate genes, such as using restriction enzymes and gene splicing to treat disease and to create transgenic plants and animals. Features a comprehensive tutorial with indepth coverage on such topics as DNA and chromosomes; genetic engineering; cloning; human genetic disorders; the Human Genome Project; and the uses of biotechnology in medicine, agriculture, environment and other areas. Also includes a unique assessment function - featuring practice and test modes - and a teacher's resource section which allows you to create customized tutorials, tests and presentations.
