Biotechnology Certificate Program

The course of study leading to the certificate includes molecular biology and several laboratory courses, each focusing on one of the current technologies in the field. The laboratory component includes education in protein purification, recombinant DNA technology, plant micropropagation, animal and plant cell culture technology, and monoclonal antibody (hybridoma) production. Large scale macromolecular separation techniques, protein and DNA electrophoresis, enzyme isolation and characterization, gene splicing, plant and animal cell transformation, bioprocessing, and genetic selection techniques are but a few of the special procedures covered in the laboratories. Individuals completing the certificate will have a strong experimental background in preparation for employment in the biotechnology industry and/or for advanced graduate study.
