Teaching Applied Genetics and Molecular Biology to Agriculture Engineers. Application of the European Credit Transfer System
Weiss, J.; Egea-Cortines, M.
European Journal of Engineering Education, v33 n1 p59-66 Mar 2008
We have been teaching applied molecular genetics to engineers and adapted the teaching methodology to the European Credit Transfer System. We teach core principles of genetics that are universal and form the conceptual basis of most molecular technologies. The course then teaches widely used techniques and finally shows how different techniques can be put together to solve specific technological problems from the environmental and food industry. Students from Spain, France, Turkey, and Poland have been able to understand and use simple scientific literature and propose experimental strategies as essays to tackle simple problems of technical interest. (Contains 4 tables and 2 figures.)
