Conociendo la Biotecnología


Este curso introductorio presenta una descripción de lo que es la biotecnología.

Conoce acerca del DNA, como se puede extraer el DNA de una célula, hacer copias del mismo, secuenciar o identificar genes.

Conoce algunas de las técnicas utilizadas en biotecnología como lo son la purificación de DNA, PCR y electroforesis.

Biotecnología es una rama de las ciencias que tiene muchas aplicaciones en los tiempos modernos.  

En esta disciplina se aplica el conocimiento adquirido por medio de las ciencias biológicas para mejorar y/o desarrollar productos que sean de beneficio en áreas como la agricultura, ambiente, nutrición, salud, entre otros.

Esta rama de las ciencias utiliza una serie de organismos, técnicas, métodos y productos moleculares para desarrollar nuevos productos, modificar propiedades físicas y mejoras. Las contribuciones de la biotecnología incluyen descubrimientos en áreas de agricultura, alimentos, medicina entre otros.

Conoce la parte teórica de como extraer, aislar y purificar el DNA de las células, secuenciar un segmento del DNA y como analizar los resultados.

El contenido es uno introductorio para la población en general que no tiene conocimiento previo en biotecnología, pero quiere conocer acerca de este interesante campo de las ciencias.
