From Proteins to Climate Change: Biotech in Action
A comprehensive high school biology curriculum that teaches the central dogma of molecular biology through a series of explorations with hands-on activities.
Use the most plentiful protein on the planet—RuBisCO—to teach the DNA→RNA→protein pathway of molecular biology that also makes a connection to the global climate through attention to the carbon fixation pathways. The curriculum is concise and an excellent way to teach about current research methods in plant biology that cross over to animal and medical fields. It also provides insight into potential science careers. The curriculum is flexible so that you can use all or part of it to teach what works for you.
