is a sad lack of practical resources for Biotechnology use
in schools at present.
the best site I have found and used is the NCBE (National
Centre for Biotechnology Education) Reading University Protocol
can download all the worksheets with gorgeous easy to follow
picture instructions, order any chemicals and equipment you
need cheaply and quickly from them and they work! I highly
recommend the new TRANSFORMER PROTOCOL.
To transform bacterial plasmids and much more the NCBE web
(NB. You will need Acrobat Reader for this site).
It is fabulous for up-to-date genetic news and other information
