    Review: “Lewin’s GENES XI is the best molecular biology textbook with a high reputation."

    Posted by Lindsay White on Dec 23, 2015 12:23:58 PM

    We recently conducted a review of our best-selling and highly regarded, GENES XI textbook. We sought feedback from instructors who are currently or have very recently used the text in their molecular biology course and instructors who have not adopted the current Eleventh Edition.

    Specifically, instructors had this to say about the text’s organization and comprehensive coverage of content:

    “For the level of class I teach [the course is open to both upper-level undergraduate students and graduate students], the topic depth is excellent. In some cases, there is more depth than I will need/use, but topics are presented in a way that this extra depth does not preclude the student/reader from gaining the knowledge and level of depth the instructor is targeting.”

    An Exciting, New Text and Animations for Future Biological Technicians

    Posted by Lindsay White on Mar 18, 2015 11:54:56 AM

    Employment of biological technicians is projected to grow 10% from 2012 to 2022 (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2014-15 Edition).  The recently published Molecular Biotechnology by Carolyn Dehlinger, emphasizes careers in molecular biotechnology, profiles of major projects and researchers, and expansive discussions of bioethical concerns and current research, making it the ideal starting point for students pursuing a career as a biological technician.
