Course description
  MARINE BIOTECHNOLOGY

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2019-20

Marine Biotechnology will join other topics to ensure the acquisition by students of basic skills in degree of Marine Sciences. This topic/course is a basic training for graduates in Marine Sciences on the application of biotechnological tools for the analysis and management of the marine and coastal environments and for the development and practical use of the organisms from such environments

DURING THIS ACADEMIC COURSE 25% OF MARINE BIOTECHNOLOGY TEHORY WILL BE TAUGHT IN ENGLISH, TO HELP STUDENTS MEET THEIR LANGUAGE KNOWLEDGE REQUIREMENT
