Abstract

The introduction of a course "Molecular Methods in Environmental Engineering" is discussed. The course is developed to address the growing national need for integrating geonomics and molecular biology into the engineering curriculum. Fifteen graduate students were successfully introduced to molecular biology through lectures and hands-on laboratory excercises following the "full-cycle 165 rRNA approach". The course helps in providing supportive and independent learning environment to the students.
