Comments about BSc Biotechnology - At the institution - London - Greater London

  • Objectives
    Biotechnology draws upon the disciplines of biochemistry, microbiology, genetics and biochemical engineering to make possible the creation of products and services from biological organisms. People’s lives have been influenced by biotechnology for centuries as a result of the use of micro-organisms to produce food and drink. The production of antibiotics by the large scale fermentation of micro-organisms in the pharmaceutical industry has revolutionised healthcare; antibiotics remain one of the UK’s main exports. With the advent of molecular biology and molecular genetics in recent years, biotechnology has entered a new and exciting phase of endeavour. It has produced new products and processes that have had positive influences on our lives and will continue to do so.
