Biotechnology, Ecology and Agriculture

Introduction

In this section, you will find resources to bridge concepts in ecology, plant science, photosynthesis, genetics and genomics together. Genetic research is a powerful tool used across disciplines in ecology, agriculture, and plant sciences. We highlight below resources created by HudsonAlpha to help bridge your ecology unit to your genetics unit.




Timeline Challenge

Agricultural Genomics

Infographic showing key agricultural technologies in corn, conifers, wheat, potatoes, tomatoes, and cotton. Developing high yeild plants optimized for changing environmental conditions is a cornerstone of meeting our food, textile and bioenergy needs. Using genomic information to shape agricultural processes is a key to accomplishing sustainable agriculture.

Agricultural Genomics Infographic

Genetics, Plant Growth and Photosynthesis

Investigate the genetic drivers of plant growth and photosynthesis and explore new applications of genetic changes that impact the type of photosynthesis. Examine how chromatin remodeling drives gene expression across plant development.

Teacher Tip:

Supports AL Biology COS Standard 6. Analyze and interpret data from investigations to explain the role of products and reactants of photosynthesis and cellular respiration in cycling of matter and the flow of energy.
