  • Outreach and partnership programs that specialize in precollege biology, genetics, or biotechnology education. The list is not intended to be comprehensive, but to highlight a number of existing efforts that could serve as resources for interested geneticists. Because such programs often receive state funding, most can provide services only to state residents. URLs can be found at http://www.biotech.vt.edu/outreach/programs.html.
