Teaching DNA By Analogies

Teaching Biotechnology by Analogies

Biotechnology, particularly genetic engineering, focuses on manipulating tiny structures in the cell. While carrying out the procedures, many concepts and standard techniques can be difficult to comprehend. Students may not understand the main idea of the procedure if they are not familiar with the technique beforehand. Short analogies, stories, and/or models have been developed to help students visualize the overall concept or technique. These analogies are designed to stand alone, and may or may not include a laboratory activity
