    Synopsis :

    This course covers the principle and application of biotechnology in industry as well as current issues involved in molecular biotechnology. The course will introduce genetic engineering basically from the perspective of advantages, strategies and the products. Some of the biotechnology products can be commercialized will be discussed as well. Production of transgenic plants and transgenic animals will be discussed in greater details especially on molecular techniques involved. Subsequently the course deals with an introduction to eugenics, human genetic engineering and human cloning, techniques in gene therapy with its application. This course will also include an introduction to intellectual property, permission for usage, protection as well as benefits and relationship between biotechnology and intellectual property and current issues involved in biotechnology from various field.
