Biotechnology is the use of biological processes and components to provide useful products, services and tools for a variety of applications. It uses knowledge from a variety of disciplines such as molecular biology, biochemistry, chemistry, microbiology, chemical engineering and computing.

This live eLearning training course is designed to provide biotechnologists and non-biotechnologists with a basic understanding of the theory, principles, techniques and potential of this rapidly moving field. Topics covered include scientific principles, overview of tools (recombinant DNA, genomics and gene arrays, proteomics, bioinformatics, etc.), biopharmaceutical product development, biomanufacturing strategies (protein expression, fermentation, cell culture, downstream processing and purification), and types of products and their applications in medicine. The training course format includes a combination of lecture with interactive group discussions.
