G-Biosciences is the preferred vendor for Ellyn Daugherty's Biotechnology, Science for the New Millennium Program.

Biotechnology: Science for the New Millennium is a comprehensive program that prepares adults and teenagers for a variety of post-secondary options including community or career college biotechnology certificate programs, four-year biotechnology degree programs, and industry workplaces. The vast text and laboratory curriculum was developed and improved with input from an industry advisory committee composed of laboratory internship mentors. Biotechnology: Science for the New Millennium allows students to increase conceptual background as they build lab proficiencies. Science-bound and business-bound students benefit from the extensive skill development, science methods, and career exploration that permeate the curriculum.
