Centre for Biotechnology

Welcome to the Brock University Centre for Biotechnology.

Biotechnology is the use of living organisms to produce goods and services for practical and industrial purposes. It has been used for centuries in fermentation and the making of bread and cheese, but today involves new scientific tools like genetic and protein engineering, cell fusion and production of monoclonal antibodies.

The Centre for Biotechnology at Brock is a joint venture of the departments of Biological Sciences and Chemistry, with courses drawn from both departments plus courses designed specifically for the program. We offer major, honours  and coop BSc undergraduate degrees and MSc and PhD graduate degrees.
