BIO 472 - Molecular Biotechnology: Theory and Application


3 Credits; 3 Class Hours
This course covers all aspects of biotechnology including theoretical bases of gene manipulation, products and processes involved in this fast-growing discipline. The usefulness and implications of biotech products will be discussed. The biotech concepts learned in the lectures are reinforced by hands-on laboratory projects. The lab component of the course includes several techniques such as genomic and plasmid DNA isolation and purifications from a variety of samples, cloning genes of interest, separation technology, blotting technology, gene library construction and screening, RT-PCR technology, DNA fingerprinting technology (RAPD and Microsatellite, RFLP) and DNA sequencing that are routinely used in most molecular biotechnology laboratories. On successful completion of this course students should be able to directly apply these techniques if they decide on a career in biotechnology.

Pre-requisite: BIO 302   Co-requisite: BIOL 472
