SCIĀ 356. Introduction to Biotechnology. 3 Credit Hours.

Biotechnology is the commercial application of living organisms involving the deliberate manipulation of their DNA. As such, biotechnology broadly impacts commercial markets in human and animal health care, agriculture and horticulture, and the forensic sciences. Students will learn, through lectures and "hands on" laboratory experiences, about the biotechnology products and "new life forms" which have been or are about to be commercialized. This course involves significant "hands on" experiences, and focuses on the development process of bioengineered products from Idea inception to market entry. This course may be taken with a laboratory to fulfill the laboratory requirement.
