WS47 BACHELOR OF RESOURCE BIOTECHNOLOGY
Undergraduate academic programme currently being offered by Department of Molecular Biology is Resource Biotechnology. Biotechnology plays a crucial role in the fields of agriculture, food production, livestock breeding, environmental protection and restoration, and resource-based industries in Malaysia.
The government has recently recognises the importance of biotechnology which has been identified as one of the national priority Research & Development (R&D) programme. To meet this objective, Resource Biotechnology students in this department will be trained in the latest technologies such as recombinant DNA technology, cell and tissue culture, genetic engineering and other molecular techniques, which are essential for biotechnology research. Final year students can specialise in one of the following major branches of biotechnology: plant, animal, environmental, marine, and medical. In addition, students will be exposed to various social economic applications relevant to biotechnology industries.
