Ethical issues, policies and consumer perspective concerning biotechnology for food production are also explored using current examples. Practical sessions provide an opportunity to learn techniques essential to the areas of Microbiology and Biotechnology including application of skills to undertake a group project on food fermentation or spoilage.
