BIOTECHNOLOGY SKILLS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

We aim to prepare you for work as a professional in biotechnological industry, or to carry out further research in an academic environment.

Why study Biotechnology?
Our programs offers a thorough grounding in one of biology’s fastest growing disciplines, supported by world-class research facilities.

An impressive range of courses

With such a wealth of expertise, we are able to cover the subject’s full scope - from molecular structure to synthetic and translational biology. Our interdisciplinary Research part of a portfolio of graduate and postgraduate programs offering you an unparalleled choice of courses and opportunities across all these areas.

An emerging discipline

With the world population booming, and the subsequent demand for food and fuel, intelligent agriculture and a cleaner, greener environment are just some of the key global challenges facing us today.
Our research training will provide you with the opportunity to enhance your research skills in using biological principles and systems to create new products, services and industries. We will also investigate the economic basis for current biotechnology structures and areas of future demand.

Wide range of career prospects

Biotechnology encompasses the pharmaceutical industry, including innovations in drug and vaccine design and regenerative medicine, as well as the biofuels industry and work in carbon sequestration and next-generation fuel production.
Our program will equip you with skills and knowledge that are very attractive to prospective employers.

Aims

Our program aims to develop:

• Knowledge and understanding of relevant methodology
• Research abilities in both laboratory and library
• Critical awareness of unresolved issues and unanswered questions in Biotechnology
• A range of transferable skills in addition to your specialized knowledge
• An intellectual ability to engage in debates on current topics in a broad context.

We aim to teach experimental methods used to investigate emerging areas of biology, including:

• How to perform and document experiments in a laboratory.
• How to draw quantitative conclusions from experimental data.
• How to present results and theoretical knowledge.

Learning outcomes

When graduating from the program, you should have gained:

• A strong background in the science underlying emerging fields of biotechnology.
• The skills to analyses a problem in scientific and practical terms to confidently approach the “technology transfer problem” between research and practical application.
• An understanding of how technology can be applied to help relieve or solve real-world biological problems.
• The ability to conduct practical biotechnological experimentation.
• The ability to think about the future development of biotechnology.

  • How you will be taught?
    Our program features a varied range of teaching methods including lectures, seminars and laboratory work. Taught element Traditional lectures and tutorials will provide an introduction to relevant methodologies and the latest advances within the diverse disciplines applicable to Biotechnology. Discussion groups, including task-based group work, will help you to develop skills in the principles of experimental design, critical thinking and problem solving.
  • Practical experience
    You will also learn how to work in a biotechnology laboratory setting and experience first-hand how experimental technology is designed and operated. Practical laboratory experience is an important aspect of the program, and is designed to provide an opportunity for economically interesting scientific principles to be investigated in a real-world biotechnological setting. You must also complete a dissertation on your work in a research laboratory or on an industrial placement. This hands-on experience is an ideal preparation for a future career within the biotechnology industry.
India’s engagement with biotechnology, life sciences and medicine is dynamic and constantly evolving. The Bio Re Inventors (BRI) sees itself a key player in this development process. Our research is focused on understanding disease biology and processing this knowledge for better management and therapeutics.

Plant biotechnologies training program that assist in meeting the challenge include genomics, molecular-assisted selection, and transgenic crops (genetic engineering).Application of plant biotechnology in tissue culture for regeneration of high quality economically important plant species, demonstration of large-scale plantation and validation of proven technology; germplasma characterization, improvement of crops through molecular biology tools, basic research, genomics initiative; host pathogen interaction, resolving of taxonomic problems by molecular interventions etc.
Fermentation technology encompass a broad field, but within this profile we target the use of microorganisms and/or enzymes for production of compounds that find application in the energy, chemical, material, pharmaceutical and the food sector. Fermentation technology is critical to pharmaceutical & bio manufacturing companies for production of many products, therefore companies are seeking individuals with experience in fermentation technology.This course focuses on providing working knowledge on bioreactor design, operation, maintenance, harvesting techniques. The course is designed to acquaint trainees with the methodologies of research & development in the field of fermentation technology.
Cell culture refers to the removal of cells from an animal or plant and their subsequent growth in a favorable artificial environment. The cells may be removed from the tissue directly and disaggregated by enzymatic or mechanical means before cultivation, or they may be derived from a cell line or cell strain that has already been established. After the first subculture, the primary culture becomes known as a cell line or sub clone. Cell culture is one of the major tools used in cellular and molecular biology, providing excellent model systems for studying the normal physiology and biochemistry of cells (e.g., metabolic studies, aging), the effects of drugs and toxic compounds on the cells, and mutagenesis and carcinogenesis. It is also used in drug screening and development, and large scale manufacturing of biological compounds (e.g., vaccines, therapeutic proteins). The major advantage of using cell culture for any of these applications is the consistency and reproducibility of results that can be obtained from using a batch of clonal cells.
PCR is a technique for amplifying DNA. This same principle of amplification is employed in rt-pcr. But instead of looking at the bands on a gel at the end of the reaction, the process is monitored in “real time”. The reaction is placed in a real time PCR machine that watches the reaction occur with a camera or a detector.
This course covers a detailed analysis of the biochemical mechanisms that control the maintenance, expression, and evolution of prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes. The topics covered in lectures and readings of relevant literature include gene regulation, DNA replication, genetic recombination, and mRNA translation.
