|Description:||Biotechnology is one of the most rapidly growing fields within applied sciences, having applications from the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions, through to the enhancement of food production. Due to the potential impact on human life, the importance of biotechnology is currently very high in both the public and scientific agenda.
The main focus of the course will be on molecular biotechnology. Molecular biology, (molecular) genetics and bioinformatics form the 'backbone' of biotechnology, and different aspects of these feature in a number of modules. A thorough understanding of the link between DNA, RNA and protein is pivotal. You will study gene expression and protein production and purification, and applications thereof in different biotechnological fields. In addition to developing subject-based expertise and skills, you will consider the many global issues associated with recent biotechnological advances.
