COURSE TITLE

SOCIOECONOMIC AND ETHICAL ISSUES IN BIOTECHNOLOGY (Isu-isu Sosio-ekonomi dan Etika dalam Bioteknologi)

COURSE CODE

STB3152

SYNOPSIS

The course is aimed at instilling a general understanding of the impacts of modern biotechnology and the socio-economic developments of the developed as well as under-developed countries and societies of the world. Proven and potential benefits as well as possible risks of the new technology to mankind, other living things and the environment in general are examined. Ethical, moral, religious and other direct and indirect implications of novel techniques employed in the genetic manipulations of microorganisms, plants and animals are discussed. Safety aspects associated with research and applications of biotechnology are also covered. The pros and cons of major biotechnological advances including the human genome project, cloning of farm animals and gene transplantations are debated. In class, selected topics are presented as triggers to initiate a free-flow discussion and exchange of opinions, leading to, wherever appropriate, a consensus. Emphasis is given to students' critical views and evaluation of pertinent issues based on known scientific facts as well as general perceptions.
