Study Genetic Engineering in USA
Study Genetic Engineering in USA. Dr. Koetje was the featured speaker, and he was talking about the somewhat simple procedure of matching select pieces of genetic information (deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA) to their host organism. He and his undergraduates do DNA fingerprinting routinely as part of their required work in the courses he teaches at the State University of New York College of Fredonia. It was in this biology department that the first undergraduate major in genetic engineering was created in New York State.

Chemistry of Materials. Chemical materials are all around us: in our cars (polymers, alloys), in the buildings we live in (cements, metals) and in the clothes we wear (polymers, pigments). Other more hidden uses of chemical materials include, medicine (bio-materials, magnetic resonance imaging machines) or technology (laser discs, magnetic energy storage). Synthetic and natural chemical materials can be seen in structural, bio-supportive, responsive and cosmetic situations everywhere.
