These slides are meant to provide an introduction to genetic engineering (NOT synthetic biology). Here we cover the history of genetic engineering from Mendelian genetics, to the discovery of DNA, and overview of modern genetic engineering methods.  Different slides can be used for various age group--for instance, leave out the detailed explanation of different types of hereditary if presenting to middle schoolers or younger. This is meant to be a template only. We welcome any and all additions! Post new slides below along with comments.
