  Biosciences - Open Courseware (OCW) 

The following links have been chosen by iBerry as good examples of OCW for this topic. Only significant content such as notes, images, videos etc covering topics in reasonable depth are included. Items consisting only of course advertisements, sub-topic headings, single lectures or where a significant proportion of material is password protected are not included. Comments are welcome!

Genetic Engineering and Society

examines the historical and scientific study of genetic engineering in medicine, agriculture, and law including examination of social, ethical, and legal issues raised by new technology

Frontiers of Biomedical Engineering
