This course emphasizes the application of biological and engineering principles to problems involving microbial, mammalian, and biological/biochemical systems. The course aims to review fundamentals and provide an up-to-date account of current biological and biochemical technology knowledge. The lectures will emphasize and place perspectives on biological systems with industrial practices. Learn more: https://bit.ly/3mxexBs
- Examine the application of biological and engineering principles to microbial, mammalian, and biological/biochemical systems.
- Recognize the fundamentals of fermentation technology.
- Describe current knowledge in biological and biochemical technology, with a focus on industrial practices.
- Comprehend growth and metabolism, genetics, and metabolic engineering in the age of genomics, the biological basis for monitoring bioprocesses, including process analytical technology and modern biological concepts in bioprocess developments.
- Examine eukaryotic and prokaryotic protein expression relevant to industrial practice, including post-translational modifications (esp. protein glycosylation).
- Assess power requirements in bioreactors, modeling of bioprocesses, traditional and new concepts in bioprocess monitoring, and the biological basis for industrial fermentations and cell cultures.
- Distinguish bioreactor operations in bacteria and mammalian cell systems, oxygen transfer and shear in bioreactors, process improvement through metabolic manipulations, and scale-up of bioreactors such as bacterial, yeast, and mammalian cells.
- Analyze the bioprocess paradigm: Scale-down, bioprocess simulation and economics, sterilization, and bioburden in biological manufacturing.
- Examine considerations in bioprocess simulation and economics, sterilization in biological manufacturing, and clinical implications of bioprocesses.
