This PDF, part of the classroom activities site by Biotechnology Education and Training Sequence Investment (BETSI), introduces the concept of recombinant DNA and a process called transformation. Here, instructors will find detailed lab instructions/diagrams that trace out the introduction of a recombinant plasmid into a foreign bacteria resulting in the "change of the bacteria's genetic make-up and traits." With the end result of the lab being a product that "glow[s] bright green," this will be a fun lab for any chemistry or biochemistry classroom. The site even playfully boasts, "[that] you will all be genetics engineers" by the end of this experiment!
