This course offers a thorough grounding in state-of-the-art biotechnology in combination with training in enterprise, commercialisation and intellectual property (IP) protection.
Biotechnology is rapidly becoming central to our lives. The use of plants, animals and bacteria, enhanced by areas such as genetics and genomics, gives rise to new food, fibre and chemical production routes, and new strategies for environmental protection and stewardship, all central requirements as the global population increases over the coming decades. Genetics and Breeding
The application of biotechnology at core and advanced level to the breeding of animals and plants. Using genes as a basis, the units explore evolutionary genetics and the use of genetics to generate and monitor new traits.
Offers a thorough grounding in state-of-the-art biotechnology in combination with training in enterprise and commercialisation. Unique set of specialisations in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Environmental Biotechnology, Genetics and Breeding; and Genetics and Genomics.
Utilises the expertise of world-leading research staff in the Faculty of Science and in the UWA Business School - along with Business mentors in biotechnology spin-outs.
