The educational objective of the course is to develop knowledge related to biotechnologies. In particular, ensure that students learn how recombinant DNA technology is employed to make useful products (including drugs), obtain results for scientific research, contribute to the determination of toxic effects of environmental origin and their elimination. This course provides detailed information on the role of proteins in cells and tissues, the main methods for the study of proteins and how this knowledge is used to obtain biotechnological products and services.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course the student should be able to know/ identify the role of biotechnologies in modern production processes, in industry and agriculture, in the treatment of toxic effects of environmental origin. Moreover, the student should to be able to apply the competences in biotechnologies acquired to the field of production processes and to the prevention / treatment of environmental toxicity.
