    COURSE DESCRIPTION: In classroom sessions students will study the theoretical and applied aspects of basic molecular biotechnology techniques for the study of DNA and proteins. In the laboratory students will apply theory and practical skills from this and previous courses to perform standard molecular biology techniques for the isolation, manipulation and analysis of DNA as well as the expression and purification of protein. Students will be assisted in career development through instruction and practice in networking and interview skills, and will be presented with various biotechnology job possibilities via special interest seminars, time and schedule permitting. COURSE LEARNING OUTCOMES: Upon successful completion, students will be able to: 1. Describe the theory behind basic biotechnology techniques including DNA isolation, purification, separation and amplification. 2. Explain the processes of recombinant protein expression and analysis by affinity purification, SDS-PAGE and Western blotting. 3. Isolate chromosomal and plasmid DNA from bacteria. 4. Use affinity chromatography to purify recombinant protein from bacteria. 5. Conduct restriction enzyme digestion of DNA and analyze the products using agarose gel electrophoresis. 6. Compose a comprehensive report describing one commonly used biotechnology technique, and present the content to the class clearly in an oral presentation. ESSENTIAL EMPLOYABILITY SKILLS (EES): This course supports the students ability to:

    Communicate clearly, concisely, and correctly in the written, spoken, and visual form that fulfills the purpose and meets the needs of the audience.

    Respond to written, spoken, or visual messages in a manner that ensures effective communication.

    Apply a systematic approach to solve problems.

    Locate, select, organize, and document information using appropriate technology and information systems.

    Analyze, evaluate, and apply relevant information from a variety of sources.

    Show respect for the diverse opinions, values, belief systems, and contributions of others.

    Interact with others in groups or teams in ways that contribute to effective working relationships and the achievement of goals.

    Manage the use of time and other resources to complete projects.

    Take responsibility for ones own actions, decisions, and consequences. PRIOR LEARNING ASSESSMENT & RECOGNITION PROCESS (ES): This course is eligible for PLAR through the Registrar and SETAS offices. Assessment of portfolio and/or testing may be discussed with faculty.

    EVALUATION & GRADING SYSTEM: Lecture (60%) In-Class Tests, Quizzes and Assignments: 35% Final Exam: 25% Lab (40%) Reports, assignments and quizzes: 30% Current topics in biotechnology presentation: 10% Students who are absent during experimental procedures will not be permitted to hand in the corresponding reports. The marks for these reports will not be available to these students. Students must achieve passing grades in both the lecture and lab components in order to successfully complete this course. STUDENT ACCOMMODATION: All students have the right to study in an environment that is free from discrimination and/or harassment. It is College Policy to provide accommodation based on grounds defined in the Ontario Human Rights Code. Accommodation may include changes or modifications to standard practices. Students with disabilities who require academic accommodations must register with the Centre for Student with Disabilities. Please see the Centre for Students with Disabilities for details.

    Students requiring accommodation based on human rights grounds should talk with their professors as early as possible. Details are available on the Centennial College website (www.centennialcollege.ca ). If students are unable to write an examination due to a medical problem or unforeseen family problems, they should immediately contact their professor or program Chair for advice. In exceptional and well documented circumstances (e.g. unexpected family problems, serious illness, or death of a close family member), students should be able to write a make-up examination to replace an examination missed. TEXT AND OTHER INSTRUCTIONAL/LEARNING MATERIALS: Required: DNA Science, A first course (2nd Edition), David A. Micklos, Greg A. Freyer with David A. Crotty, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2003, ISBN # 0-87969-636-2 BI 312 Lab Manual (will be made available to students via Blackboard) Suggested Reading: Molecular Biotechnology; Principles and Applications of Recombinant DNA (2nd Edition), B.R.

    POLICY STATEMENTS College Policies The following statements are selected from Centennial College policies approved by the Board of Governors. Student Responsibilities Students are expected to know the contents of the course outline and to discuss with the professor any areas where clarification is required. Students should keep all course outlines for each course taken at Centennial College. These may be used to apply for transfer of credit to other educational institutions. A fee may be charged for additional or replacement copies. Other Policies Students should familiarize themselves with all College Policies that cover students rights, responsibilities, and the Academic Appeal process. For further information, consult the Academic Matters Section in the full-time and Continuing Education calendars. The Academic Appeal Application form is available from any Enrolment Services Office. Proof of Student Status Students must produce official photo identification at any time during the semester when requested to do so by any professor. (The official piece is the Centennial Student Card.) Continuing Education students do not have Centennial Student Cards, and so they may use other forms of photo identification, such as a drivers license, health card, or other government-issued photo identification. Final Examinations When writing a test or examination, students must put their official photo-ID cards in full view for review by the invigilator. Students who do not have official photo-ID will be permitted to write the examination with a substitute photo-ID, but they will be required to produce photo-ID at the program or department office within 24 hours or the next business day following the examination, or else the examination results will be void. More Final Examination Policies are available at http://my.centennialcollege.ca.

    Academic Progression Policy for Diploma and Certificate Programs: College Academic Standings will be applied. Please see Academic Policies and Procedures, Full-Time Calendar.

    Faculty Consultation Professors are available to see students outside of class time. Students can contact professors via voice mail, email, or through their program or department office. Information regarding how to contact teachers will be provided at the beginning of the course and is also available in the program or department office.

    Human Rights Statement It is the policy of the College that all programs will strive for a learning, teaching, and working environment that promotes inclusion, understanding, and respect for all students and employees, consistent with the Ontario Human Rights Code and Centennial College's Statement of Diversity.
