Summary

The objective of the course is to introduce students to a field dealing with an issue of biotechnology and its applications in modern industry, in processing of mineral resources and waste. The course offers information on the production of biologically active substances which, in particular, assert themselves in the environmental protection in the biotechnological manner. Some lectures are dedicated to an explanation of cell’s genome complexity as an introduction to understanding modern biotechnological methods making use of gene manipulation on a cellular level. Lectures are complemented by seminars in a laboratory which focus on examinations of cell’s morphology and physiology in biotechnologically active organisms.
