Biotechnology is the use of biologically-derived knowledge (from tissues, cells, DNA, RNA, proteins, metabolites) to create useful products. You will follow the pathway from biotechnology research to product development, including drug discovery and how genetic material and proteins can be manipulated and produced, how metabolites can be utilised, and explore case studies in drug design and screening. The course includes aspects of intellectual property, commercialisation, and basic enterprise management and the ethical and social aspects of biotechnology, as well as legal and regulatory affairs.
