BTE 6043 Biocatalysis in Industry

3 Credits
Biosensors and biochips is one of the most exciting, complex and fast-growing areas of biotechnology today—the interface between biotechnology, nanotechnology and microelectronics industries. The course covers conventional biosensors based on whole cells, nucleic acids, antibodies and enzymes (e.g. enzymatic glucose monitoring) as well as new and emerging technologies related to designing, fabricating and applying multiarray biochips and micro-fluidic systems (lab-on-the-chip). The goal is to familiarize students with basic principles of biosensors design and applications. The course also covers practical applications of this technology in health care, medical diagnostics, defense and other areas.
