Lecture: From fundamental research to application
The lecture series will give a comprehensive overview of how findings from fundamental research can be translated into application.
Biochemistry: General types of catabolism and anabolism
Bionics/Biomechanics: Technical solutions inspired by nature
Genetics: Approaches for ‚third’ generation biofuels
Plant biotechnology: Plant bioreactors
Proteomics: New tools for disease research and diagnostics
Synthetic biology: Designer cells for biomedicine
Exercises: Insight into application-driven research
In this practical exercise the participants will acquire the knowledge to devise a production process for a therapeutic protein from analyzing the DNA sequence to the production, purification and characterization of the biopharmaceutical product.
Bioinformatics: Analysis of sequence data
Genetics: Manipulation of the microbial metabolic network
Synthetic biology: Construction of synthetic gene networks in human cells for optimized gene expression.
Plant biotechnology: Production of complex recombinant biopharmaceuticals
Proteomics: Protein analysis by high-resolution mass spectrometry
Bionics/Biomechanics: Functional morphology and mechanics of plant organs (e.g. bending, torsion and damping)
