Course Description
Biotechnology is a fast-rising field of endeavor both in the local and global settings and one of the greatest breakthroughs of the 20th century since its potentials is huge especially in augmenting poverty and hunger.
The main objective of this subject is to educate students and prepare them for their future roles as leaders, journalists, entrepreneurs, scientists, or even as private citizens with adequate knowledge in order for them to make informed decisions on biotechnology products, latest breakthroughs and developments and related issues on human health, and the environment, and ethical concerns. Furthermore, to encourage more Filipino youth to pursue career in this field and become staunch advocates of biotechnology in the country now and beyond.

Course Description:
This subject is an extension of Research II course offered in the Second Year. This is the culmination and application of theoretical concepts and knowledge learned in research. This subject will guide the third year students on how to conduct a scientific research study according to the rules and standards of the scientific community. In addition, an intensive research paper writing experience (in synergy with the Technical Writing subject) will help the students to come up with a substantial research paper in preparation for the local and international competitions. And by building linkages and partnership with other research institutions and laboratories, students are expected to consult to the different experts in the fields to make their learning experience more meaningful.
Course Objectives:
The students are expected to accomplish the following goals within the given school year: Present a significant research proposal to the local SRC; Write a research paper; Perform the experimentation using an appropriate research design; Document the materials and methods; Visit a scientific, educational and research institutions for content enhancement; Consult experts in the fields for validations; Strengthen linkages and partnership with other institutions for both contract and non-contract researches; Foster positive values and attributes through research practice; Submit an accomplished research paper; Prepare for an oral defense of the research study; and Participate to the science fair in the local and international scenes.
