This exciting volume offers a broad collection of college-level experiments that provides students a hands-on understanding of biotechnology and molecular biology, including applications and practical uses.
The inquiry-based activities, chosen for their safety, reliability, and flexibility, are designed to pique the students' interest and provide them with opportunities for independent study. The clear, readable text makes concepts easily understandable, and the user-friendly format allows students to easily follow protocols.
Each investigation includes suggested reading, laboratory language, and analysis questions that help direct student thinking. Side-bar comments offer special hints and detailed information to ensure success, but keep the protocols themselves easy to follow. Comprehensive laboratory safety guidelines are also included.
The experiments, organized into fundamental laboratory activities and applications of these protocols, are easily adapted to fit the time frame of a one- or two-semester laboratory course. Biotechnology Explorations is an ideal companion volume to Glick and Pasternak's Molecular Biotechnology: Principles and Applications of Recombinant DNA.
