Course Dates, July 6th 2009 until July 26th 2009
Facilitated by the School of Biology, Newcastle University

Programme Outline:
Molecular Biology and Biotechnology have the potential to answer many of the problems raised in our pursuit to live a more sustainable existences in a World where pressures from climate change, food shortages and antibiotic resistance are becoming increasingly realised.
This programme is intended to offer applicants an overview of modern molecular biology techniques that relate to biotechnology, and how it can be applied in the wider commercial field. The main emphasis of the programme is towards a “hands on” experience of the techniques, and this will be supported by several key lectures on applications in the real world and the processes of taking an idea through to commercial realisation.
The programme will follow two main themes of i) sustainability of Agricultural Biotechnology and ii) exploitation of novel antimicrobial products. Using a range of molecular biological techniques students will screen for natural products that can be used to address these themes.
Students will have the opportunity to experience some of the cutting edge techniques that the School of Biology have to offer such as genomic and proteomic analysis. Furthermore using our strong links to local industries we will visit a laboratory supplies company to view their state of the art production facilities.

Who Should Attend:
This course is aimed at those students who are approaching their final year of Undergraduate studies in the fields of biology, molecular biology or biotechnology. The high levels of practical based teaching will complement your pre-existing knowledge and it is our goal that this will stimulate you own critical thinking of the subject areas covered.
Although aimed at the above category the course is open to all Graduate Students who are looking to broaden their knowledge of this growing area of research, however some pre-existing knowledge of molecular biology and DNA recombination would be advantageous but by no means restrictive.

Course fee of £1,550 includes:
•Tuition fee
•Accommodation charges – self catered shared accommodation, you will have a study bedroom sharing in a flat with five other students
•Access to University facilities
