Biotechnology Institute Publishes Resources for Exploring DNA in the Classroom
With the support of the DOE Human Genome Program, the Biotechnology Institute has published an interactive CD-ROM for 7th to 12th grade classrooms. DNA and Genes Odyssey, which can be used on PC or MAC, contains seven lectures, numerous animations, and an extensive teacher's guide and is accompanied by a short videotape. Lecture topics are "DNA and Genes Basics," "Uniqueness and Inheritance," "Human Genome Program," "Genetic Testing," "Evolutionary Biology," "Careers," and "Predicting the Future." Lecture overheads and teacher materials can be displayed on screen or printed. A teacher survey is available online [Order form].
The spring issue of Your World magazine, Cracking the Code, explores the impact of the Human Genome Project. Its publication coincided with the release of a 2-hour television special titled "Cracking the Code of Life," produced by NOVA and WGBH-TV and broadcast on PBS stations (www.pbs.org/wgbh/ nova/genome). Written for 7th to 10th graders, Your World is the magazine of biotechnology fundamentals and applications in healthcare, agriculture, the environment, and industry. The publishers are preparing Cancer and Biotechnology for the fall issue and Microbial Genomics for spring 2002. [Contact for CD-ROM and magazine: firstname.lastname@example.org; Website]
Text versions of main articles and the teacher's guide for the 1997 Human Genome issue of Your World magazine are on the Web.
