ACHIEVEMENTS & APPLICATIONS OF BIOTECHNOLOGY IN 21st CENTURY
As scheduled, Tan Tao University (TTU) warmly welcomed Dr. Davi Ludvig Goncalves and Mrs. Kieu Pham to visit and sharing with TTU’s Students at Levy Hall, Tan Tao University. Dr. Davi is now a Postdoctoral Research Scientist from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, USA, where two TTU’s outstanding students from School of Biotechnology at Tan Tao University, Thuy Nhung and Tam Vy, have been doing their internship program.
At the talkshow, students from the School of Biotechnology of Tan Tao University and students of Tan Tao High School for the gifted learned about how to produce fuel and plastics by using source of bio-material to replace for using Petroleum – the raw material is gradually exhausted and also the leading cause of pollution in the world. Therefore, this is considered a new step in the biotechnology sector in the use of biofuels to improve the environment as well as human life. In addition, Dr. Davi also shared his success with his team in finding ways to increase the productivity of bioethanol production by using recombinant microorganisms to reduce costs and price, thereby encouraging people to use this fuel source effectively. These recombinant microorganisms are also used by his research team for the production of bioplastics as well as the treatment of some common diseases.
Hope that Students enjoyed the sharing from Dr. Davi!
