Simple explanations of modern genetic technologies

WHAT ARE DNAdots™?

DNAdots™ are bite-sized, simple explanations of modern genetic technologies.
They are freely available to anyone who wants to learn more about current biology and DNA science.

Each DNAdot covers a new topic, such as CRISPR or Next Generation Sequencing, in just two pages using non-technical language. They can be used to build up your own knowledge or to introduce cutting edge topics into the classroom.

Use the associated study questions as part of a homework assignment or assign them to students as a jumping off point to further research.
