Biotech Project

URL:biotech.biology.arizona.edu
  • Nice links page
  • No background information on topics in biotechnology; a bit sparse in content

The rise of biotechnology has clearly changed the research landscape. Accordingly, science education must be willing to adapt to the constantly evolving technologies and techniques. The BioTech Project at the University of Arizona provides resources for teachers to introduce concepts of biotechnology in the laboratory to students of various ages. The “Laboratory Activities” tab provides access to teacher and student guides for a number of experiments, while the “Biotechnology Resources” page provides links to both print and online resources. It would be nice if the website provided a section with background information on various topics or techniques in biotechnology, but for now, the BioTech Project is a nice website to visit if you are an educator looking to bring a little bit of biotech into your laboratory.
