Course Description & Objectives: 

This course provides an introduction to protein biotechnology and provides the basic knowledge required for biotechnology laboratory set up and biotech materials/supplies. The molecular basis of protein expression, recovery and analysis will be emphasized.  Laboratory experimentation and research will provide hands-on experience of the techniques used in protein biotechnology laboratories; in so doing will supplement the lecture sessions and enhance students’ learning.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Objectives:

  • To equip the student with knowledge on protein analysis at a molecular level and applications in biotechnology.
  • To impart knowledge and hands-on experience on laboratory techniques employed in the protein laboratory and industry.
  • To impart knowledge on protein activity, expression and characterization.
  • To illustrate the mechanism and importance of protein expression, protein post –translation modifications and their applications.


Learning Outcomes: 

At the end of the course, the students should be able:

  • To describe the biochemical and physical properties of proteins.
  • To explain how proteins create, sustain a biological system and allow cell to cell communication
  • To express, measure and control protein activity in the laboratory.
  • To extract, quantify, purify and preserve proteins.
  • To explain the mechanism and importance of protein synthesis and how it relates to day-today applications.
