Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Bioprocess Engineering, Second Edition thoroughly updates the leading introductory textbook on biochemical and bioprocess engineering to reflect advances that are transforming the field -- from genomics to cellular engineering, modeling to nonconventional biological systems. It introduces techniques with wide applicability in pharmaceuticals, biologics, medicine, environmental engineering, and beyond.
Includes index, appendix. - - Traditional industrial bioprocesses
What is a bioprocess engineer?. - - An overview of biological basics. - - Enzymes. - - How cells work. - - Major metabolicpathways. - - How cells grow. - - Stoichiometry of microbial growth and product formation. - - How cellular information is alteres. - - Operating considerations for bioreactors for suspension and immobilized cultures. - - Selection, scale-up, operation, and control of bioreactors. - - Recovery and purification of products. - - Bioprocess considerations in using animal cell cultures. - - Bioprocess considerations in using plant cell cultures. - - Utilizing genetically engineered organisms. - - Medical applications of bioprocess engineering. - - Mixed cultures.
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.
