Student’s Name Lecturer’s Name Course Date Industrial Microbes in Food Biotechnology Industrial microbiology and biotechnology contain the use of microorganism to achieve desired goals whether evolving new products with economic value or improving the environs. Industrial microbiology has increased on products such as medical and pharmaceutical compounds in Canada. The microorganisms used in Canada's industry have been isolated from the environment and they are modified by use of classic mutation-selection procedures. Biotechnology has improved over the last period as seen through the modification of microorganism used in molecular biology which allows the use of recombinant DNA technology. Genetic information and designing of products such as proteins can be easily manipulated than before in Canada. Modification of microbial gene expression can be done as it allows genetic transfer of information from different highlighted groups of an organism such as between plants and bacteria. The whole process of selection and application resource skills and regulation including intellectual properties provision by the government and involved parties.

Instructions for Writing Assignment : All students will be required to complete the individual assignment. The assignment will consist of a case study wherein actual examples and results are collected to address a chosen issue/topic on microbial bioproducts: Industrial Microbes in Food Biotechnology (see above class schedule/weeks: 9-10 for further details) or Industrial Microbes in Agricultural/Environmental Biotechnology (see above class schedule/weeks: 10-12 for further details). Students will use available sources of information (literature, community, internet, etc.; the students will be required to use scientifically-valid discretion so as to judge the accurateness/appropriateness of the information source) on the chosen topic during the semester and complete a written report. The report must have a minimum of 2500 words (excluding figures, tables and references), not exceeding 10 pages (Times New Roman 12-point font size; 1. 5 - line space) using letter-size paper. The format should follow regular scientific writing: abstract, introduction, contexts, and conclusion.
