The course covers many aspects of biotechnology, including aspects of molecular pharmacology, gene therapy, and drug safety evaluation. This course also introduces analytical methods as applied to experimental design and quantitative analysis of data encountered in biotechnology and biomedical sciences. Graduate students will also take part in assembling specific components of a manuscript in the drug discovery field. PREREQ: BIO 1000 , CHM 1300 , and graduate status.
