A second module for high school biology, Saving the world one gene at a time, is available to download. The focus of this module is how GMOs are related to climate change. GMOs have an extremely wide range of applications, many of which could be used to reduce the negative effect of humans on the global climate. Students will get lots of exposure with this topic throughout the lessons and hands on experience with specific plant defense GMOs through the experiment.
