>"This century, opening with the rediscovery of fundamental principles

>fundamental principles illustrated by dramatically uncommon transgenic and
>cloned organisms.  Helping our students keep abreast of such a rapidly
>developing field requires novel teaching and learning strategies,
>innovative curricula, appropriate use of electronic communication
>technologies, new organisms for the teaching laboratory etc."
>This Workshop is beginning to take shape and I'd like to invite any
>interested members of the BioLab [and Plant-ed] community to contact me
