Biotech Applied looks at the practical applications of biotechnology - including drug development, the use of bacteria in industry, biotechnology on the farm and at the dinner table (the issue of genetically modified foods), the use of DNA forensics, and strategies for introducing biotechnology into the classroom.

Winding Your Way Through DNA

Excerpts from UCSF's 1992 symposium on biotechnology.

Three of the many topics presented at this important and informative symposium are available in About Biotech. The Bioethics section includes DNA on the Witness Stand, a discussion of DNA identification technologies. Biotech Applied (this page) links to Green Genes, a discussion of genetically modified food, and Biotech Chronicles includes From Corned Beef to Cloning, an account of the beginnings of recombinant DNA technology.
