Genetically modified food? Yes or No

Would you eat Genetically Modified food? What if they had more nutrients?

Last week the Senior Biology class went on an excursion to the AgriBio building at LaTrobe University Bundoora to do two sessions, a practical session using DNA Manipulation Techniques to investigate ways that farmers use DNA markers to ensure the best outcome when breeding livestock. The second session focused Ethical implications of genetic engineering where students discussed with students from other schools the positives and negatives faced by scientists and society. Students really enjoyed sharing their well thought out opinions on this controversial topic.

This week and next week Students are working on their Scientific Investigations with a focus on Antibiotics students design and conduct an experiment then create a scientific poster to present their findings.
