BioBuilder - informative animations and activities for synthetic biology


BioBuilder is a free resource with animations and activities about synthetic biology. The animations are about the interactions between a lab scientist and a learner as they brainstorm about topics and issues in science, engineering, technology and even community. There are also lab activities available.

There are also "bioprimers" which are one page curriculum resources to go with the animations for high schools and early college.

Synthetic Biology: "Synthetic biologists apply engineering principles and extend genetic engineering techniques to construct new genetic systems". This is a new field with lots of implications. 

There is also another website that has some other great resources and ideas for using BioBuilder.
