Description

Would you like to learn how to apply biology to solve problems and develop beneficial products? This biotechnology course will teach you how to create various outcomes using biological systems to promote the well-being of people and the planet. These improvements have been made possible by the diverse areas of biotechnology, and the sectors benefiting from these improvements include medical processes, industrial processes, and agricultural procedures. Discover why biotechnology is one of the fastest-growing industries globally by learning the hands-on skills required for you to succeed in the profession. These skills include the ability to prepare solutions, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) amplification of DNA, and growing bacteria. We will also explore how multiple other fields contribute to making positive biotechnology solutions that are beneficial and sustainable.

We will explain how biotechnology has changed the medical industry by producing new medicines that have contributed to the treatment of cancers and heart disease. You will learn about the different laws, regulations, and policies introduced to ensure you practise biotechnology safely and sustainably. The agricultural industry widely uses Molecular biotechnology to manipulate genes and improve the efficiency of crop production. This course will teach you the differences between biotechnology and molecular biology and explain how these two disciplines are related.

The following section provides an overview of genetic engineering, giving you a deeper understanding of recent developments in biotechnology. Some themes include the complete process of recombinant DNA technology, which is made up of multiple steps taken to join DNA molecules from two completely different species. We also explore the historical background of biotechnology by studying past incidents of biotechnology from its inception to its modern-day developments. We'll also look at their applications, essential research tools and explore how the health sector has evolved thanks to biotechnology. The business implications of biotechnology conclude this in-depth biotechnology certificate where you will study the functional details of industrial biotechnology, entrepreneurship in biotech, and molecular diagnostics. Suppose you're interested in this exciting field and want to learn its many implications as a student or biology professional. In that case, this course is a great place to hone your passion.
