Application of ideas from nanotechnology to solving biological and chemical problems and refining new methods and tools for health and medicine; overlapping, multidisciplinary activities at the intersection of photonics, chemistry, biology, biophysics, nano-medicine, and engineering. Laboratory experiments apply the fundamentals of nanotechnology to DNA and protein sensing. Laboratory fee.


• Demonstrate a working knowledge of Restriction Endonucleases and plasmids and their use in molecular biology research. • Explain and use of modern molecular biology techniques such as agarose gel electrophoresis, polymerase chain reaction, and DNA sequencing. • Explain and use and next-gen sequencing techniques • Fabricate and use a protein biosensor
Uploaded a Course Syllabus
Bionanotechnology applies ideas from nanotechnology to solving relevant biological and chemical problems and refining new methods and tools for health and medicine. Molecular structures exhibit unique properties at the 1 to 10 nm scale that the size and interaction where the quantum phenomenon starts to play an important role as compared to bulk materials. Bionanotechnology describes the overlapping multidisciplinary activities that evolves photonics, chemistry, biology, biophysics, nano-medicine, and engineering converge. The new course will expose students to this emerging field, which has broad applications in biomaterials and medicine and energy. Student will learn, through laboratory experiments, the fundamentals of nanotechnology and applied to DNA and protein sensing.
