Applied Molecular Biotechnology B
These course outlines are a guide only. They are provided for the information of prospective students. Although every effort is made to ensure the most up to date information is provided, timetables often change each semester due to the availability of rooms and resources. Content (including lecture/practical topics, assessment and textbooks) is also regularly reviewed to ensure relevance and effective learning.
Applied molecular biotechnology B broadens knowledge of and training in applied chemical aspects of biotechnology. Key areas of research will be introduced, and illustrated by examples and case studies. Lecture topics include medicinal chemistry, synthetic and computational quantitative structure-activity relationships for drug molecules, biosensing, and bioremediation are. The practical labs aim to give students an understanding of the chemical methods used in biotechnological analysis.
