Exploring and Modeling Essential Genetic Engineering and Gene Expression Concepts through Bacterial Transformation
Modeling provides a low stakes way for students to express and revise their thoughts about gene expression and deepen their understanding of the underlying science behind bacterial transformations.

Participants will work together to construct models that explain how a glowing jellyfish gene can be transformed into bacteria, and how the expression of green fluorescent protein (GFP) can be turned on or off. They'll design their own experiment to express GFP, predict the results, and learn how revise their models to explain unexpected outcomes and incorporate new information.

If you're new to bacterial transformation experiments, or you want a new way to teach and old favorite, this webinar will give you some great ideas for teaching gene expression.
