Engineering Principles in Biotechnology

Engineering Principles in Biotechnology book coverThis book is a short introduction to the engineering principles of harnessing the vast potential of microorganisms, and animal and plant cells in making biochemical products. It was written for scientists who have no background in engineering, and for engineers with minimal background in biology.

Engineers are eased into biochemical reactions and life scientists are exposed to the technology of production using cells. This book includes coverage of reactors, oxygen transfer and scale up, cell culture, and stem cells and synthetic biology. It also deals with product purification and then later chromatography, the modern workhorse of bioseparation.

Drawing on principles from engineering and life sciences, this book is for practitioners in biotechnology and bioengineering.
