An introduction to biotechnology by Dr. Ed Zanders.

A one day course providing a background to biotechnology for those who have no specific training in this subject, but who encounter it in their translation work.

The course begins with an overview of the two main features of modern biotechnology, namely the harnessing of micro-organisms to produce small molecules (e.g. antibiotics and vitamins), or large molecules (proteins) through genetic engineering. This is followed by an introduction to microbiology and molecular biology, topics that lead naturally to a review of genetic engineering and recombinant DNA technology. The various components of the ‘genetic engineering toolbox’ are described in simple terms, so that delegates can come away from the course with a clear understanding of what terms such as ‘PCR’ actually mean in practice. Since modern biotechnology makes extensive use of antibodies, these are covered in a section on applied immunology which includes descriptions of antibody therapeutics and the immunoassays used for diagnostics.

The second part focuses on biotechnology translation using worked examples of patents and other written material. This course does not focus on any specific language other than English.

In addition to the course itself, delegates are provided with copies of all slides in a course manual as well as a glossary of terms and other useful resources.
