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 development 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.
BioScience Excellence™ Contents
The BioScience Excellence™ program contents have been divided into six distinct sections. Each section consists of several teaching modules with information provided as to how these modules are connected, and their appropriate order for training purposes. These sections collectively cover the length and breadth of modern life science topics and are adequate for achieving the highest standard for biotechnology education of the most rigorous school, college, and university training worldwide.
The General Biotechnology topic deals with the very basic components of life sciences and gives an overview of the scope of biotechnology. This section is suitable for conveying an understanding of genes, proteins, and their interactions.
The Microbial Studies covers handling of microorganisms, an important tool in biotechnology.
The Molecular Biology and Genomic topics cover the multitudes of molecular cloning and recombination techniques.
The Protein and Proteomic section covers various aspects of protein molecules, including composition, structure, function, and various analytical and related techniques.
The Immunotechnology Studies deals with sophisticated immunotechnology detection techniques.
The Miscellaneous Biotechniques section includes various widely used laboratory techniques in protein and nucleic acid research.
Curiosity Based Life Sciences Educational Programs
Biotechnology has been described by various commentators as one of the most important technologies of the 21st century. Biotechnology promises to have the potential to solve a wide variety of challenges faced by modern society, including the supply of quality food materials, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, forensic science, environmental concerns and security needs.
The emergence of biotechnology has created a world demand for trained scientists, technicians, and a variety of allied professionals. Hence, teaching topics in biotechnology are now standard in educational programs worldwide.
Recognizing the significance and challenges of life sciences education, G-Biosciences has initiated the BioScience Excellence™ program. The program features hands-on teaching kits based on inquiry and curiosity that explore the fundamentals of life sciences and relate the techniques to the real world around us. The BioScience Excellence™ teaching tools will capture the imagination of young minds and deepen their understanding of various principles and techniques in biotechnology and improve their understanding of various social and ethical issues.
International Standard for Biotechnology Education
The BioScience Excellence™ program has been developed to meet the demands of teaching life sciences. Scientists, professionals, and teachers from the USA, Europe, and Asia have developed the BioScience Excellence™ program. The aim of this BioScience Excellence™ program is to provide a training program of international standard that will prepare students to compete in a global economy driven by biotechnology. The curricula, teaching tools, and kits have been designed to meet the expectations of the most rigorous school and college training worldwide.
The BioScience Excellence™ program offers hands-on and curiosity based laboratory activities to deepen understanding on selected subjects, such as genes, proteins and their interaction within cells. The program enables the learning of biotechnology by posing questions, exploring and utilizing the real world, hands-on exploration that stimulates the interest of students and makes the process of learning interesting.
A major aim of the BioScience Excellence™ program is to prepare students for the vast career possibilities in the life sciences field, such as pharmaceutical development, agriculture, genetic engineering, environmental sciences, forensics, ecology, evolution, and education. Comprehensive training based on the BioScience Excellence™ program will deepen understanding of both genomics and proteomics. More importantly, the program builds students' confidence for their next career challenges, be that further education or seeking employment in the ever-growing biotechnology industry.
Learning by Hands-on Activity and Curious Exploration
The key strategy of the BioScience Excellence™ program is to pose questions and to challenge students to think, explore, and understand how various processes in life sciences work and their application to the real world, as well as their social implications. Our objective has been to design and develop kits for active participation and problem solving.
Given the rapid growth of information and techniques, the kits are designed to give the most up to date foundation in current technical concepts and scientific methods. Each kit consists of three main components; materials for hands-on activities, “Teacher’s Guide”, and a “Student’s Guide”. The “Teacher’s Guide” provides detailed principles behind the techniques to be introduced, and where feasible, a real world scenario to increase interest in the techniques and step-by-step instructions on conducting each laboratory activity. The “Student’s Guide” details a step-by-step procedure for the laboratory activity, lab activity record sheets, and teaches how to analyze results and draw conclusions.
The kits will challenge students to think, participate in hands-on activities, collect data, analyze and interpret findings, and draw conclusions based on the findings and observations. And finally students learn how to relate and employ what is learned in the classroom to the real world of science – a skill that is a hallmark of quality education in industrialized nations.
BioScience Excellence™ Kits for All Levels of Learning
Depending on the concept and depth of information needed to be taught, the BioScience Excellence™ program offers kits that can be easily adapted. The range of kits offered under the BioScience Excellence™ program is suitable for training students from school through university levels.
The BioScience Excellence™ program can also be adapted for professional development programs for teachers, technicians, and other professionals with little or no formal science training.
