Refined By: Bio and Chemical Technologies


The Genetic Science Learning Center is a science and health education program located in the midst of the bioscience research being carried out at the University of Utah. The Learn.Genetics website provides educational materials on genetics, bioscience and health topics. The resources are designed to be used by students, teachers and members of the public. 

Quality Control Microbiologist

This video, presented by WGBH, takes a look at a day in the life of a quality control microbiologist at a pharmaceutical company and provides a detailed account of what is possible with a microbiology degree, including the hands-on laboratory aspects field. Viewers will also find a background essay, discussion questions, and standards alignment for the material. Running time for the video is 2:38.

NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards

This 454-page document, from SpaceTEC's National Aerospace Technical Education Center, serves as a guidebook for professionals in charge of handling chemical hazards. The document includes chemical structures or formulas, identification codes, synonyms, exposure limits, chemical and physical properties, incompatibilities and reactivities, measurement methods, respirator selections, signs and...

DNA to Protein Learning Module

This learning module, provided by Support Center for Microsystems Education gives an overview of how "digitally encoded information in DNA is translated into a functional protein that can be used for diagnostics, analysis and measurements in medical applications." The content will help users in understanding the applications of MEMS devices in medicine. The module is divided into two sections:...

Photovoltaics CDROM

This resource, created by Christina Honsberg and Stuart Bowden of Arizona State University, serves as an electronic book on photovoltaics. Photovoltaics, as described by Honsberg and Bowden, "is a most elegant energy source," created when "light shines on a crystal and produces electricity." The book, which was developed with college-aged students in mind, can be read from start to finish as a...

Periodic Table of Elements in Pictures

This image shows each element of the periodic table represented by a picture of something that contains that element. For example, sulfur depicts a picture of egg yolks. Symbol and color keys are included. 

GeneChip Microarrays

The curricula on this website, hosted by Affymetrix, were "developed for high school science teachers" and include "activities and modules on the use and function of microarrays, [to] be embedded at multiple levels in all life science classes." According to Affymetricx, microarrays "allow scientists to perform genome wide experiments in a fraction of the amount of time it took even just fine years...

Three Activities: Environmental Health - Bacteria Study, Micro Study, and Bacteria Killers

This resource provides a problem-based activity on risk assessment of environmental health issues. The lesson consists of three related activities: Bacteria Study, Micro Study and Bacteria Killers. "Bacteria Study" gives students hands-on experience with the concepts of epidemiology. "Micro Study" has students sketch, observe, and compare different types of bacteria that can grow in moist...

What is Cloning?

This free resource from the University of Utah's Genetic Science Learning Center provides an overview of cloning for the layperson. The Genetic Science Learning Center "is a nationally and internationally-recognized education program that translates science and health for non-experts." Their concise introduction to the controversial genetic practice of cloning includes introductions to artificial...

Click and Clone

This free interactive activity from the University of Utah's Genetic Science Learning Center, part of their series titled "Cloning," allows the user to practice somatic cell nuclear transfer cloning using animated mice. Using the "Mouse Cloning Lab," users practice cloning by going through the steps of isolating donor cells from mice, removing and discarding the nucleus from an egg cell,...
