There is a lot of information available about biotechnology and the use of GMOs but how much of it is based on science?
Biotechnology includes not only GMOs, but also lab skills, determining and developing materials for new uses, and food science applications. This set of materials will help students to understand the science of genetic modification and the skills necessary to be able to work in the growing agriculture biotechnology industry.
