By working through the activities in this tutorial, you will be able to describe the technique, the major details of how it works and the results you get from:
There are more detailed expectations for the activities given in this lesson.
This tutorial involves working through interactive web activities to learn about four common techniques that you will be using in this Biotech unit. Working through these simulations and taking basic notes (as instructed) as well as making reference to the lab manual you received in class. Some of the activities include quizzes - which will give you feedback on how well you understand the technology.
Begin with http://www.dnai.org/b/index.html to build context for Biotechnology. Read thrrough and listen to the sections.
Go to: http://www.dnai.org/b/index.html While you need to go through each of these "lessons", make detailed notes on: Cutting and Pasting, Sorting and Sequencing, Ampllifying
