Working with the building blocks of life
Molecular Biotechnology is about the application of biological science at the molecular level. It is one of the most exciting and fastest-growing fields of science, and is a fundamental component of modern biology. It is already used widely in manufacturing insulin for diabetics, vaccines, and a range of other biomedical products.
In the future, these technologies will continue to advance in areas such as developing new treatments for diseases and biological solutions for environmental problems.
The University of Otago's Bachelor of Applied Science (BAppSc) in Molecular Biotechnology provides you with a multidisciplinary mix of scientific knowledge—skills that will set you up to make the most of commercial opportunities which abound in this fast-growing industry or to focus on an interdisciplinary area of study.
