    MSc courses in Plant Biotechnology and Food Biotechnology

These one-year taught courses are an exciting new initiative highlighting the
industrial applications of biotechnology and the implications of genetic
modification for the plant and food industries.  The courses are offered
in collaboration with researchers from ZENECA Agrochemicals  (Jealott's
Hill Research Station).  The input from scientists who are applying
plant biotechnology on a commercial basis complements our strong academic 
base at Reading.

Key features:  
     Four month research project
     Core modules in molecular biology, biochemistry and biotechnology.
     Plant Biotechnology: highlights the commercial opportunities for 
			  exploitation of existing and novel crop plants. 
     Food Biotechnology: emphasis on fermentation and enzyme processing.

The courses begin in October and applications are invited from graduates
with a good honours degree in a biological science or biochemical
engineering.
