The faculty of the Orange County Biotechnology Education Collaborative (otherwise known as OCBiotechEducation.org), authored or adapted the laboratories contained in this manual for the purpose of constructing an Open Educational Resource (OER) for students beginning studies in the field of Biotechnology. The 9 faculty members and supporting staff established our collaboration in 2013 and are employed at Santiago Canyon College, Fullerton College, Santa Ana College, and Irvine Valley College.
We would like to especially thank Danielle Alarid for her work creating many of the images in this manual and for serving as the formatting editor to ensure consistency of presentation of the exercises and experiments. We would also like to thank the staff and student assistants who participated in photography and other tasks integral to the construction of this lab manual. This manual was made possible by the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges Online Educational Resource Initiative (ASCCC-OERI). Special thanks to the reviewers for their valued feedback.
