In the decade since the first edition of bioprocess engineering: basic concepts, biotechnology has undergone several revolutions. Currently, the ability to sequence the genome of whole organims presents opportunities that could be hardly envisioned ten years ago. Many other technological advances have ocurred that provide bioprocess engineers with new tools to serve society better. However, the principles of bioprocess engineering stated in the first edition remain sound.
