Course Description:
Biotechnology Accelerated and Research enables students to complete the Biotechnology course at an accelerated pace. Students collaborate with local institutions to create and conduct authentic group research projects, and may enter their projects in science fair competitions. Students are engaged in laboratory activities about 30% of class time. Lab topics include extraction and analysis of DNA, electrophoresis, bacteriological techniques, culturing strains of bacteria, determining and making solutions, and cloning and sequencing. Plasmids are used to achieve bacterial transformation. Students conduct research, read and analyze scientific literature, preparing them for post-secondary education while exploring scientific career paths. In this accelerated class, students will also obtain advanced understanding of biotechnology skills and concepts in preparation for summer internships or university lab research during undergraduate study.
