Learning Outcomes
Aims of the course: To demonstrate the multi-collectivity of biotechnology achieved with basic knowledge received by several fields of science. Is aiming to educate the student about the important role of microorganisms in life conservation on earth through the development as well as analysis of biotechnological applications concerning health, agriculture, industry, environment and human. Discuss the principles that may govern the link between baic knowledge with productive procedures. Skills: : By the end of this course, the students should be able to recognize several microorganisms involved in biotechnological procedures and to make the student familiar with the assessment of biotechnological products.
