Course Description & Objectives: 

Crop biotechnology deals with production of a crop plant that has been genetically engineered using recombinant DNA technology either to promote or to prevent the production of a particular protein, with the objective of introducing or enhancing a desirable characteristic in the plant or seed. This course is aimed at training crop biotechnology technical personnel, who are competent in the field of biochemistry, microbiology, physiology, traditional and molecular genetics, transgenic breeding, reproduction and dissemination biology.  The course will equip the students with theoretical knowledge and skills which will allow them to become efficient researchers, design technicians in the crop production sector. The students will be exposed to recent and advanced aspects of molecular biology and biotechnology related to crop applications through critical reading, discussions and seminars on current research problems in these areas.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Objectives:

  • Expand working expressions and knowledge of crop biotechnology,
  • Enhance the development of an in depth appreciation for specific topics in crop biotechnology
  • To encourage the application of information learned in the classroom to solve real life problems pertaining to crop production.
Learning Outcomes: 

At the end of this course the student should

  • Be able to demonstrate the knowledge and skills required to grow, maintain, and manipulate cells in culture.
  • Have an understanding of the theory, practice, and application of recombinant DNA techniques in crop production.
  • Be able to demonstrate knowledge and critical thinking skills in decision-making related to bioethical issues in crop biotechnology.
