BIOT220 General Biotechnology

This course is designed to provide a survey of biotechnological applications of molecular and cell biology. Topics include transcription, translation, cell cycle regulation, protein expression, prokaryotic and eukaryotic expression systems, DNA sequencing and amplification. The laboratory will give the students exposure to recombinant DNA technology such as cloning techniques, restriction digests, DNA isolation and purification, electrophoresis, DNA amplification and analysis protein expression and purification, and immunoassays. This course will concentrate on the molecular principles of biotechnology related to broad range of applications. Its objective is to build skills necessary for successful employment in biopharmaceutical industry or transfer into four year academic institution. Prereq. - BIOT175 and BIOS240.
