Bachelors in Genetics. Genetics and Bioengineering Program is a special program combining natural sciences and engineering. The principal is to first understand and explore the biological processes at the cellular level, then correlate this knowledge with different fields of engineering, and finally implement solutions in the industry and technology. Genetics and bioengineering is broadly applicable and used in biomedicine, biotechnology as well as other related fields. Bioengineers are primarily oriented to the application of methods and techniques in the field of engineering and problems in biology and medicine. The primary use of the biotechnology is based on the design and development of new devices, production of new biomaterials, artificial tissues and organs, as well as development and production of pharmaceuticals.

Bachelor in Bioinformatics and Genetics

Dynamics of the receptors to which drug molecules bind to is another field of study in our department. Understanding the functioning mechanism of the receptor is the very first step towards developing a way to interfere with its working mechanism. [+]

In today’s world molecular biology, biochemistry and other biological fields are becoming increasingly information driven. Mainly the need of processing massive quantities of sequence information generated by recent developments in genome sequencing and proteome analysis has propelled these life sciences into a new era in which computer science, information technologies, and biology merged into a single discipline as bioinformatics. Accordingly genetics in conjunction with bioinformatics have been changing the old view in clinical diagnostics. By comprehensive genetic testing, individuals who are more susceptible to disease can be identified before any disease even exists. This way early predictive measures can be taken. Moreover personalized drug design, to tailor a specialized treatment based on your genetic makeup, seems to be a standard way of disease treatment in the near future. In our department we concentrate on computer-aided drug design. In computer aided drug design a receptor molecule of the disease-causing mechanism is modelled in the computer. Succeedingly a drug molecule is designed to interact with the receptor molecule in such a way to fix malfunctioning mechanism of the protein. The candidate drug molecule can be a novel chemical structure which has been not synthesized before as well as a match from a database of already known drug molecules. This way of in silico computations of drug-enzyme interactions significantly shortens the process of experimental drug design for the target receptor. Dynamics of the receptors to which drug molecules bind to is another field of study in our department. Understanding the functioning mechanism of... [-]

Bachelors in Genetics. The Biology Department at UPEI has a strong tradition of helping people realize their potential through deep consideration of the biological world. A scientific understanding of the plants and animals is, in many ways, its own reward. But it is also a pathway to a large number of exciting and fulfilling career opportunities. A biology program is a common route toward the health professions (human and veterinary medicine, dentistry, physiotherapy, etc.), for which we offer strong pre-professional programs. It can also lead to careers in environmental analysis, biotechnology, laboratory diagnostics, and many other things. Biology graduates also often establish other sorts of careers (lawyer, business professional) for which the knowledge of biology can be a strong personal and professional asset. The strength of our educational programs derive from the strength of our scholarly activity and research. Our faculty hold grants from the Natural Sciences and Research Council of Canada, Canada Foundation for Innovation, Atlantic Innovation Foundation, Canadian Institutes of Health Research, and Prince Edward Island Health Research Institute, among others.
