Genetic Engineering (Summary Notes) consists of a comprehensive set of 17 Information Handouts written in clear, simple language that will help your students gain a better understanding of DNA manipulation techniques, including gel electrophoresis, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and gene editing using CRISP-Cas9 technology. Genetic Engineering (Summary Notes) also includes is a list of suggested flash card questions students can use for study purposes.
Genetic Engineering (Summary Notes) covers the following topics:
genetic engineering techniques: (i) cutting DNA using restriction enzymes) (ii) sorting DNA using gel electrophoresis (iii) finding DNA using probes (iv) joining DNA using ligase enzyme (v) amplifying DNA using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) (vi) transporting DNA using vectors (vii) making copies of DNA using gene cloning
gene editing using CRISPR-Cas9 technology
comparing DNA profiling and DNA fingerprinting
genetically-modified organisms (GMOs)
The language here is simple and generally easier to understand than the average textbook, making it accessible to as many students as possible. The content also includes lots of clear and easy-to-follow diagrams to assist the visual learner.
Genetic Engineering (Summary Notes) contains a black-and-white version of the handouts, which can be printed for students, as well as a full colour version that can be displayed during class, helping to facilitate discussion.
I hope you and your students find this product useful and that you enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed creating it!
