New Biotechnology Science Education Kits Available from Crosscutting Concepts and EMC Publishing

Huntington, W.V. (PRWEB) September 09, 2013

Crosscutting Concepts has partnered with EMC Publishing and author Ellyn Daugherty to develop and market Biotechnology by Ellyn Daugherty™, a series of engaging, hands-on laboratory kits to accompany the best-selling textbook and laboratory manual "Biotechnology: Science for the New Millennium." Designed for introductory courses, this program teaches the concepts and hands-on lab procedures required for entry-level careers in the rapidly growing biotechnology industry.

The complete program now consists of a textbook, laboratory manual, and easy-to-use, convenient laboratory kits. The first two kits in the series include Direct Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) of Bacterial Alpha-Amylase, and Ion-Exchange Chromatography.

Direct ELISA of Bacterial Alpha Amylase - In this lab activity, students learn how to determine if a protein is present in a solution and determine the concentration of that protein using direct ELISA analysis.

Ion-Exchange Chromatography - In this lab activity, students explore the principles of ion-exchange chromatography by separating lysozyme from amylase. They then analyze the fractions using a spectrophotometer and examine the absorbance data to evaluate the separation efficiency.

Crosscutting Concepts plans to launch eight additional lab kits in the coming months, including polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE), western blotting (protein immunoblot), restriction digestion of DNA, bacterial transformation of E. Coli, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and plasmid preparation.

About Ellyn Daugherty - Ellyn Daugherty is a veteran biotechnology educator and recipient of the Biotechnology Institute’s National Biotechnology Teacher-Leader Award. She is the founder of the San Mateo Biotechnology Career Pathway (SMBCP). Started in 1993, SMBCP has instructed more than 4,000 high school and adult students.
