Table of Required Courses
Multidisciplinarity   Expanding the International perspective
The courses of this department are particularly emphasized on the application in Life Sciences based on the well-known science background of NTHU. The courses offered by the department include Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Biophysical Chemistry, Bioinformatics, Structural Biology, Genomics and Proteomics and other fields, in order to cultivate the next generation of interdisciplinary biotechnology researcher. On the other hand, some academicians are invited to come back to Taiwan every year for joining some seminars and having some discussions with the current students in order to expand the international perspective of the student.
