Biotechnology at Brock University is the use of living organisms to produce goods and services for practical and industrial purposes. Biotechnology has been used for centuries in fermentation and the making of bread and cheese, but today involves new scientific tools like genetic and protein engineering, cell fusion and production of monoclonal antibodies. Biotechnology is a strategic technology and an important economic component of industrialized nations. Biotechnology at Brock is a joint effort of the departments of Biological Sciences and Chemistry, with courses drawn from both departments plus courses designed specifically for the program.
Career opportunities in biotechnology are expanding rapidly due to a dramatic increase in global market demands for biotechnology products.
As a modern biotechnologist, you’ll study areas such as recombinant DNA technology, genetic and protein engineering, cell fusion, and gene cloning and expression.
