The faculty of the Orange County Biotechnology Education Collaborative (otherwise known as OCBiotechEducation.org), authored or adapted the laboratories contained in this manual for the purpose of constructing an Open Educational Resource (OER) for students beginning studies in the field of Biotechnology. The 9 faculty members and supporting staff established our collaboration in 2013 and are employed at Santiago Canyon College, Fullerton College, Santa Ana College, and Irvine Valley College.

We would like to especially thank Danielle Alarid for her work creating many of the images in this manual and for serving as the formatting editor to ensure consistency of presentation of the exercises and experiments. We would also like to thank the staff and student assistants who participated in photography and other tasks integral to the construction of this lab manual. This manual was made possible by the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges Online Educational Resource Initiative (ASCCC-OERI). Special thanks to the reviewers for their valued feedback.

The following labs require special attributions:

Lab 16: The title "A Taste of Genetics", Figure 2, and procedure are taken from the lab developed by Embi Tec and used with permission

Lab 17: ELISA and Lab 20: Good Manufacturing Practices were originally developed by the Southern CA Biotech Center at Miramar College and is provided as an OER resource to support biotechnology education.

Lab 21: Biofuel Project was created by the Department of Energy-funded Great Lakes Bioenergy Research center (DOE BER Office of Science DE-‐FC02-‐07ER64494) and is available at www.glbrc.org/outreach/educa...2e-converting- cellulosic-biomass-ethanol

In social psychology, attribution is the process of inferring the causes of events or behaviors. In real life, attribution is something we all do every day, usually without any awareness of the underlying processes and biases that lead to our inferences.

For example, over the course of a typical day, you probably make numerous attributions about your own behavior as well as that of the people around you.

When you get a poor grade on a quiz, you might blame the teacher for not adequately explaining the material, completely dismissing the fact that you didn't study. When a classmate gets a great grade on the same quiz, you might attribute his good performance to luck, neglecting the fact that he has excellent study habits.

What impact do attributions for behavior really have on your life? The attributions you make each and every day has an important influence on your feelings as well as how you think and relate to other people.
