CELL TRANSFORMATION IN TOBACCO LEAF DISKS
Students work with whole plant material and are not required to measure small quantities, yet they can see evidence of transformed plant cells (plant cells that have genes from bacterial plasmids). This is a laboratory suitable for...

Modeling Bacterial Transformation
Bacteria is not always the bad guy! Show your classes how bacterial replication is an advantage in biotechnology. Learners explore the function of bacteria in replicating DNA and producing transgenic organisms. This is the final lesson...
