In reading assignments and discussions, students explore scientific, societal, and Christian perspectives of biotechnology-including biosafety, sustainability, patenting, and ethical concerns. In laboratory exercises, students clone human DNA, express it in bacterial cells, and purify the recombinant protein. Lectures and laboratories. Prerequisites: BIOL 161 (or BIOL 141), BIOL 250, CHEM 253 (or CHEM 261 and CHEM 262)
