Biotechnology Education and the Internet. ERIC Digest.
The world of modern biotechnology is based on recent developments in molecular biology, especially those in genetic engineering. Since this is a relatively new and rapidly advancing field of study, there are few traditional sources of information and activities. This digest highlights biotechnology resources including those that can be found on the Internet, World Wide Web, and other sources. The resources presented here relate to topics that have been identified as main areas of study in biotechnology: bioprocessing, foundations, genetic engineering, agriculture, biochemistry, medicine, environment, and bioethics. Topics include: (1) Web Guides and Tools; (2) Major Starting Points; (3) Agricultural Biotechnology; (4) Mailing Lists; (5) Newsgroups; (6) Books, Journals, and Periodicals; (7) Bioethics; (8) International Biotechnology; (9) Regulation and Patents; and (10) Federal Government.
