Ch 16: DNA Technology and Genomics: Help and Review

About This Chapter

The DNA Technology and Genomics chapter of this High School Biology Help and Review course is the simplest way to master DNA and genomes. This chapter uses simple and fun videos that are about five minutes long, plus lesson quizzes and a chapter exam to ensure students learn the essentials of DNA technology and genomics.

Who's it for?

Anyone who needs help learning or mastering high school biology material will benefit from taking this course. There is no faster or easier way to learn biology. Among those who would benefit are:

  • Students who have fallen behind in understanding cloning, DNA technology and genomics
  • Students who struggle with learning disabilities or learning differences, including autism and ADHD
  • Students who prefer multiple ways of learning science (visual or auditory)
  • Students who have missed class time and need to catch up
  • Students who need an efficient way to learn about DNA technology and genomics
  • Students who struggle to understand their teachers
  • Students who attend schools without extra science learning resources

How it works:

  • Find videos in our course that cover what you need to learn or review.
  • Press play and watch the video lesson.
  • Refer to the video transcripts to reinforce your learning.
  • Test your understanding of each lesson with short quizzes.
  • Verify you're ready by completing the DNA technology and genomics chapter exam.

Why it works:
