There were no elephants with two trunks, no corn plants with four ears and no humans turned into Frankensteins, but there was evidence of recombinant DNA, transformation and cloned organisms. During the first week in August, 26 high school instructors from across the state and two college instructors received training in the laboratory skills of recombinant DNA at Drake University. The course, "A First Laboratory Course in Recombinant DNA Technology," was presented by David Micklos, the program director for the DNA Literacy Program at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in Cold Spring Harbor, New York, and sponsored by Pioneer Hi-Bred International of Johnston, Iowa.
