BIO 106 - The Biotech Century

1 course unit
So much of the news concerns biotechnology: cloning, gene therapy, cancer treatments, assisted reproductive technologies, genetically modified foods, the human genome project, and bioterrorism.  Perhaps high school biology never covered such topics.  Using newspaper articles, an excellent genetic textbook for non-science majors, and Internet resources, this course is designed to allow the student to explore “the new biology”.  Most of the students who have taken this course find immediate applications of the course knowledge to their own lives.  Perhaps you will too.
Prerequisite(s): Students who have taken BIO 150 , BIO 151 , or BIO 152  need permission of the instructor to enroll.
Meets general academic requirement SC.
