Certificate Programme planned for launch in year 2014.
Molecular biology pertains to the study of living systems at the molecular level, especially DNA and RNA, and provides a background for further work in the rapidly expanding areas of genomics, cell biology, biotechnology, microbiology, diagnostics, and therapeutics. Molecular biology methods are used extensively in modern day drug discovery, research and development, and diagnostics.
Our course is intended for personnel who are seeking basic and advanced-level molecular biology training. This informative course is beneficial for personnel involved with, or participating in, molecular biology-related and biotechnological research, supervision, scale-up or manufacturing, other technical operations, or basic/applied research.
This course will focus on selected aspects of molecular biology that provides principles for understanding the structure and functional relationships of molecular biology techniques including DNA manipulation, sequencing, cloning, subcloning, library construction, screening, RNA isolation and characterization, analysis of expression, cDNA synthesis (RT-PCR) and analysis, microarrays and gene chips, and Real-Time-PCR. Multiple modern day molecular biology techniques in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries will be presented and several examples of molecular applications will be highlighted.
Upon completion of this course, you will have gained an understanding of techniques that are currently being utilized in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. You will be familiar with concepts pertaining to basic molecular biology principles and techniques for understanding various contemporary areas of research and their applications.
