This is an absolutely excellenet document. I would love to see this get into every high school science teachers hands. We completed a BIOTECHNOLOGY CURRICULUM for the Pennsylvania Department of Education a number of years ago. I am not sure if there would be anything in the document that would be of interest to you.
I was wondering if there should be some indication of familiarity with the "organism' being used? For example, should they be familiar with the difference in morphologies of cells in vivo and in vitro? If doing protein assays would it be important to have a surface familiarity with the biochemical process that is happening?
Also, would it be possible to list job titles/descriptions at the end of the document and have them correlated to various compentencies in the document? It would be excellent if you could use actual job descriptions and starting pays from major biotech firms in this section. It would be very helpful if there were quaotes from these employers as to what they look for, what they need and what they are disappointed in seeing from the available workforce.
