This study collected data of 404 pre-service teachers from the metropolitan Taipei area. An instrument "Bioethics Education Questionnaire" was developed for this study to investigate the pre-service teacher's perceptions about given bioethical issues. The results indicated that biotechnology issues were highly social relevant, and most of the pre-service teachers partially supported the biotechnology. However, personal involvement has a significant impact on their attitudes toward biotechnology. In addition, pre-service teachers of biology major had more knowledge of biotechnology and had clearer perception about the social/ethical impacts of biotechnology. The results of this study can not only serve as the basic structure for the future bioethics education curriculum, but also can offer useful information for people interested in this subject.
