HBB 2415: TRANSGENIC PLANTS AND ANIMALS (45 Contact Hours)a) Passage PurposeThis passage covers a distant ramble of plants and animals which feel been transformed tooration the challenges associated after a while influence shelter and remedy including strategiesof gene convey.b) Passage ObjectivesAt the end of this passage, the student should be conducive to;1. Describe the contrariant transgenic animals and plants generated to oration specificchallenges2. Describe the contrariant strategies used in gene convey3. Explain the concept of molecular pharming and the associated benefits.c) Passage DescriptionWeek 1 Introduction to transgenic plants and animalsDefinitions, fact, reasons for intercharges, other methods formodificationWeek 2 Strategies for gene convey :in animals and plants; Stem cells, oocytes, sperms, protoplastWeek 3 Methods of gene conveyMicroinjection, electroporation, viral conveyWeek 4 Methods of gene conveyLeaf disc intercharge, grain boarding, agrobacterium mediatedgene conveyWeek 5 CAT 1Week 6 Case studies of transgenic animals:Increased fix origination, improved alimentation, improved development rebuke in;cattle, fish, sheep and poultry. Improved leather and wool in sheep.Week 7 Case studies of transgenic plants:Pest hindrance, Bt crops, viral, bacterial and fungal curse hindrance,Week 8 Case studies of transgenic plants:Herbicide tolerance, tardy outcome ripening, increased oil contented, improvedalimentation and emphasis tolerance.Week 9 Plants and animals as biorectors in molecular pharming;origination of pharmaceuticals, hormones, interferons and antibodies,Week 10 Plants and animals as biorectors in molecular pharming;Production of polyhydroxybutyrebuke for biodegradconducive plastics, cyclodextrinsin refuse introduction, flavour and odourWeek 11 Plants and animals in molecular pharming;Production of esculent vaccines, ethical issues associated after a while transgenicplant and animals, potential proceeds of transgenics, spoken presentations ofclass assignmentsWeek 13 CAT IId) Teaching MethodologiesLectures, Assignments, Tutorials, Demonstrations, Case Studies, Class Presentations,Group discussions.e) Instructional Materials/ EquipmentsCourse notes, marker boards, markers, dusters, computer and LCD projector.Laboratory equipments, materials and reagents for practicals.f) Passage AssessmentPracticals, 15%, Assignments 5%, CATS 10%, Semester Examinations 70%.g) Passage Textbooks1.
