BEN380.2 Fundamentals of Biotechnology – Fundamentos de Biotecnología

Taught in Spanish at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica and may not be offered every semester. This course offers students an overview of the different aspects of biotechnology: its history, definitions, projections and real-world applications. However, biotechnology is also a double-edged sword for its ability to modify and alter the course of nature, posing potential risks and ethical dilemmas. Therefore, given the importance of these issues, the course is also interactive, as we debate and discuss topics related to bioethics. (IIQ 2663)
