A Guided Inquiry in a Computer-based Biology Lab
Computer technology is used by the research teams of 3-4 students to search for background information for the guided inquiry, organize this information into a concept map, complete an electronic template (the TLNB: Team Lab Notebook), and analyze data with Microsoft Excel. A computer projection system is used to present their findings to the other teams. This format can be adapted to do open and guided inquiry laboratories in biology for both the major and non-major student. In addition it can

Detecting Genetically Modified Food by PCR
Genetic engineering is responsible for the so-called "second green revolution."  Genes that encode herbicide resistance, insect resistance, drought tolerance, frost tolerance, and other traits have been added to many plants of commercial importance. In 2003, 167 million acres of farmland worldwide were planted in genetically modified (GM) crops equal to one fourth of total land under cultivation.  The most widely planted GM crops are soybeans, corn, cotton, canola, and papaya.
