Available to students only with permission of the Head of Molecular and Cell Biology.
Bioengineering is usually defined as the exploitation and manipulation of biological
resources to deliver commercial and social benefits. This subject is designed to cover
the fundamental and advanced aspects of bioengineering with a particular focus in
recombinant DNA technology and recombinant protein production in both eukaryotes and
prokaryotes with applications in molecular diagnostics, microbial production of therapeutic
agents, bioremediation and biocatalysts. The subject will also examine contemporary
ethics and patenting issues relevant to bioengineering.
- contrast advanced techniques used in bioengineering;
- design a bioengineering research proposal based on advanced recombinant DNA and protein
- argue the ethics and patenting procedures associated with bioengineering.
