Molecular Biotechnology

This module highlights the applications of recombinant DNA and transgenic technologies to produce useful biotechnology products (eg: molecular diagnostics, therapeutics, agrichemicals) or commercial processes in life science. Topics to be covered include: state-of-the-art molecular tools and systems for biotechnology; recombinant protein production and downstream processing; transgenic plants and animals as bioreactors for production of pharmaceuticals (eg: vaccines, antibodies); human molecular diagnostics, therapeutics and gene therapy; marine biotechnology; environmental biotechnology and its impact on human health; regulatory guidelines for biotechnology products and release of GMOs into the environment.
