Analytical Techniques in Biotechnology

by Kevin Ahern, PhD

As the understanding of biomolecules and their roles within biological systems increases, different analytical methods have been developed for research or diagnostic purposes. Some examples are the amplification of DNA to see whether a particular sequence is present in a given sample; and proteomics, used for the quantification of proteins in cells or tissues.

In this course, the student will be introduced to methods of DNA amplification, microarray analysis, and methods of proteomics, including 2D gel electrophoresis.

For optimal comprehension, the student will be required to be familiar with the basic notions of molecular and cellular biology and the biochemistry of nucleic acids and proteins.
