Subject is based on:

 Biochemistry, BSc

Aim of the subject:

The main goal of the course is to transfer the basic biotechnological knowledge and approach related to the pharmaceutical industry, which will greatly facilitate the students’ future collaboration with the biotechnologists if they will later be employed in the pharmaceutical industry. The course aims to cover the basic biochemical reactions in living cells, organization and structure of living organisms, presentation of microbiological methods. Building on the basic knowledge acquired, further aim is to present the fields and methods of industrial biotechnology, from the cultivation of productive cells to the extraction of the product. Connecting to the cell-free, exclusively enzyme-based industrial technologies, enzymes and their reactions, as well as certain elements of enzyme kinetics, will also be described. Finally, specific technologies from various areas of broad-based biotechnology will be presented. The semester ends with the presentation of the environmental and human health risks caused by drug residues as orgaanic micropollutants, and shows possible solutions to mitigate them.
