Biotechnology is not a new field in science. Humans have been experimenting with biotechnological advances since the early days of farming. This four-volume set, written at a 6th to 8th grade reading level, examines the long history of this technology, its recent advances and the controversies that have arisen in light of these technological advances. What is the human genome? How do we clone animals? What diseases have we learned to control using biotechnology? Students will find the answer to these and other questions as well as unanswered questions that will encourage them to think critically. Volume 1: Words and Terms Volume 2: Important People in Biotechnology Volume 3: The History of Biotechnology Volume 4: Debatable Issues Grades 6-8
