The exploitation of biological systems has had a major commercial impact over the last decade. Biotechnology will continue to grow in the postgenomic era, in areas ranging from drug discovery, to stem cell research and genetic engineering. As well as explaining the science behind biotechnology, this course also explains how new start-up biotechnology companies are created, how to explore the market potential of products and processes, how to create business plans and how money is raised from venture capitalists.
