Ch 10: Genetic Engineering Basics: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Genetic Engineering Basics chapter of this Middle School Life Science Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about genetic engineering. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long, and they teach all of the topics involving genetic engineering required in a typical middle school life science course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other life science work.
  • Identify the genetic engineering concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.
