Biotechnological processes are increasingly involved in the creation, protection and use of environment. The course focuses on the latest knowledge related to these processes. In particular, it is the application of molecular biological techniques in the development of technological biological agents and monitoring of ecosystem. The study of the bioremediation process involves interactions of contaminating compounds in the ecosystem, their metabolism, degradation kinetics, engineering solution of processes and design of appropriate mathematical models.
