The Associate of Applied Science in Biotechnology provides a full range of courses to prepare students for entry-level positions in the biotechnology field. The academic curriculum provides a background in historical development of biotechnology, bioethics, safety, reagent preparation, cell culture techniques, protein purification and analysis techniques, microbiology and fermentation methods, molecular biology (DNA) techniques and bioinformatics. With advances in molecular and cellular biology, the biotechnology industry has expanded in scope to include human diagnoses and therapeutics, agricultural and veterinary applications, food production and environmental cleanup.
This degree program prepares graduates to enter the biotechnology workforce as entry-level technicians and conduct a variety of basic and advanced laboratory techniques used in biomedical research.
Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.
