Biotechnology Techniques Science Fair Project Ideas

Biology + Technology = Amazing Innovations

Yogurt, biofuel, biodegradable plastics, and antibiotics are all examples of products based on biotechnology research and manufacturing techniques. It turns out that all living things are made of cells and share the same basic cellular machinery. This simple fact has allowed scientists to apply the same techniques to tackle very different problems. You can explore some of these techniques for yourself with projects from the biotechnology techniques science project lists. The topics you can try include:

  • Exploring genetic engineering techniques, such as isolating and/or manipulating DNA to produce new products
  • Using enzymes to speed up the rate of natural chemical reactions
  • Experimenting with gel electrophoresis, a common method for separating DNA for a number of uses, including forensic identification
  • Purifying proteins and other macromolecules using chromatography
