Lecture Series

The emphasis of the lecture series was on the acquisition of a working knowledge of the history and contemporary practices and tools of different biological processes for food, materials and health-care production.
And the importance to develop critical thinking about the field of BioDesign, its broad definition and the limitation of terminologies through lectures and debates with a diverse set of specialists.
