Ch 13: Prentice Hall Biology Chapter 13: Genetic Engineering

About This Chapter

The Genetic Engineering chapter of this Prentice Hall Biology Textbook Companion Course helps students learn the essential biology lessons of genetic engineering. Each of these simple and fun video lessons is about five minutes long and is sequenced to align with the Genetic Engineering textbook chapter.

How it works:

  • Identify the lessons in Prentice Hall Biology Genetic Engineering chapter with which you need help.
  • Find the corresponding video lessons within this companion course chapter.
  • Watch fun videos that cover genetic engineering topics you need to learn or review.
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • If you need additional help, rewatch the videos until you've mastered the material or submit a question for one of our instructors.

Students will learn:

  • Genetics overview
  • The process of DNA cloning
  • Function of restriction enzymes
  • The Sanger method of DNA sequencing
  • How ligase is used to engineer recombinant DNA

Genetics: Heredity, Traits & Chromosomes

1. Genetics: Heredity, Traits & Chromosomes

We view manipulation of genes in our crops and livestock as a recent development. Yet, man has been manipulating the genetic makeup of his food for thousands of years through cultivation and breeding. This lesson will begin to help you understand how genetics works.

DNA Cloning: Definition and Process

2. DNA Cloning: Definition and Process

DNA cloning is used for a variety of purposes, but how does it work? In this video lesson, you will learn about the process of cloning DNA, as well as see examples of how cloning is used in science, medicine, and consumer products.

Restriction Enzymes: Function and Definition

3. Restriction Enzymes: Function and Definition

Restriction enzymes played a critical role in the advent of genetic engineering. In this lesson, you will learn what role restriction enzymes play in creating recombinant DNA.

The Sanger Method of DNA Sequencing

4. The Sanger Method of DNA Sequencing

The ability to determine the DNA sequence of an individual is a powerful tool for paternity questions and criminal investigations, among other uses. This lesson will describe one laboratory method that can be used to sequence DNA.

How Ligase is Used to Engineer Recombinant DNA

5. How Ligase is Used to Engineer Recombinant DNA

DNA ligase makes recombinant DNA technology possible. In this lesson, you will learn how new versions of genes can be designed for experiments in novel host organisms using DNA ligase.

Practical Applications of DNA Technology

6. Practical Applications of DNA Technology

DNA technology is a field that has many applications for our everyday lives. In this video lesson, you will learn about some of the important contributions of DNA technology to industries such as medicine, agriculture and criminal investigation.
