Course description



This course will deal with recent progress in biotechnology, focusing on the development of
biopharmaceuticals, especially on protein thera
peutics in terms of manufacturing process
es

and underlying molecular mechanisms. Key technologies including protein design, metabolic
pathway engineering,
nanobiotechnology
,
cell culture engineering,

synthetic biology,

and
etc.
will also be introduced.
