Course summary

This is one of the most dynamic areas of modern biology and takes a 'finding solutions' approach. It includes the study of microbial biotechnology, genetic and cloning technologies, drug design, plant cell technology, synthetic biology, stem cells and biological production methods.

How will I learn?

In later years, you will undertake more personal study and research. You will be linked with a research group and an in-depth project will form an important part of your final-year assessment.
