Introduction to Biotechnology

In some ways, biotechnology is about changing the nature of nature.

Take a tour of biotechnology, one of the fastest growing and most exciting scientific fields, in plants, animals and human medicine.

Scientists in plant, animal and human medical services discuss examples of cloning and transgenics- the removal and transplantation of genes into other organisms.

Did you know?

  • Some plants, like BT cotton, can make their own pesticides
  • Organisms can be transformed into bioreactors- living factories of important chemicals
  • Organs and tissues from animals can be transplanted into humans

Discover the answers to these questions and much more as the Introduction to Biotechnology DVD Program explores human tissue and organ replacement, nutrition augmentation in foods, pest and drought resistance for plants, disease treatment and many other possibilities of biotechnology.

Features:

  • Basic principles of biology
  • Applications of biotechnology in plants
  • Applications of biotechnology in animals and medicine

The viewer will appreciate the computer-generated imagery and video microscopy, which clearly explain the potentially difficult and abstract concepts of the cell, the nucleus, chromosomes, DNA, genes, mitosis and meiosis.

An outstanding educational presentation that includes a supplement!
