Pima C.C. offers two biotech courses

August 10, 2007

By Flinn Foundation

This fall, Pima Community College West Campus will offer two courses that are highly relevant to the biotechnology community. BIO 135, Genetics, Biotechnology, and Human Affairs is a non-majors, general education course which would be highly appropriate for someone wanting to understand more about biotechnology and get a taste of key techniques. BIO 206 is a core course in our Biotechnology Certificate Program and provides instruction in recombinant DNA techniques. There is some financial aide available for BIO 206, through Job Path and the DOL. For more information, contact Lisa Werner, 520-205-6002.
