The Biotechnology Education & Training Sequence Investment (BETSI) Project was established in 2004, funded by a National Science Foundation (NSF) Advanced Technological Education (ATE) grant and built on the foundation of the Southwestern College Biotechnology Program. The BETSI Project was designed as "an educational cascade that starts with high school teacher training and student outreach, followed by the completion of the SWC Biotechnology Certification Program and internship opportunities, culminating with facilitation of jobs in the biotechnology industry." The BETSI Project has made several classroom activities available online including the activity featured here, "Human Chromosome Lab Procedures". This activity includes a basic introduction, a materials list, background information, procedures (step-by-step and including illustrations), and a results area. This exercise should prove useful to any educator interested in Human Chromosome instruction and lab activities.
