Have you wondered how they get bacteria to produce Human Insulin? or How they made rice that contains increased Vitamin A? Or maybe you're just curious what exactly is a GMO?
Genetic engineering is the process of manipulating the genetic material of an organism — often to include the DNA from a foreign organism. During this workshop you'll learn the basic biology that enables genetic engineering. And then you will learn hands on by transforming bacteria by introducing a gene from the bioluminescent jellyfish Aequorea victoria.
**No Prior Biology Knowledge Required**
