Applied Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology
This course demonstrates how biotechnology can be applied in the field of environmental research and to find solution and management strategies for environmental contamination problems in water, sediment, soil and air.
Biotechnology is widely used in the environmental sector for creating biosensors for sensing pollutants in the environment, for monitoring natural attenuation and also for developing superbugs for bioremediation.
This course introduces the students to how biotechnological tools can be used to study environmental assessment, monitoring and remediation.
The course is divided into lectures, laboratory experiments and assignments. The course will facilitate understanding of both environmental microbiology and biotechnology.
