The Institute of Biotechnology provides teaching at university level, applied research, continuing education courses, and services in the field of biotechnology.
Our understanding of biotechnology is that it involves the linking of discoveries in the natural sciences with technological knowledge, with the aim of applying biological systems to the analysis and manufacture of products. The focus is on applications in the areas of pharma, food and ecology.
