Molecular and Medical Biotechnology - CBMS731

The unit explores particular areas of contemporary molecular and medical biotechnology building on students’ existing knowledge and importantly, showing how science is translated to applications in health, industry and the environment. Lecture topics range from the production of recombinant biomolecules in various cell factories and their industrial and medical applications to nanobiotechnology, forensics and stem cells. Instrumentation and technology supporting biotechnology will be introduced and discussed. Visiting lecturers from various academic disciplines will lead discussion on their areas of expertise. A special feature for the 700-level students is an exercise on science communication. The unit also has a significant hands-on laboratory component with tutorials and assignment tasks.
