Course description

CAO CODE: GY304 Biotechnology is a new name given to the long-practised skills of using biological material for the benefit of humanity. Classically this meant the use of yeasts to make beer or bread, or the use of lactic acid bacteria to make cheese. Modern Biotechnology includes these areas but also extends to the application of DNA-based technology, Immunology, Biochemistry and Microbiology to make new products or provide services to the areas of healthcare, agriculture, food and the environment.
