Bioprocess Engineering Principles : Pauline M. Doran :

The Best Books of Derivation of most mathematical models is fully explained in an attempt to counter the tendency of many students to mem- orise rather than understand the meaning of equations. However, increasingly, biotechnologists are being employed by companies to work in co-operation with biochemical engineers to achieve pragmatic commercial goals.

Bioprocess operations make use of microbial, animal andplant cells and components of cells such as enzymes to manufacture newproducts and destroy harmful wastes. However, as a great deal of engineering involves formulation and solution of mathematical models, and many important conclusions about process behaviour are best explained using mathematical relationships, it is neither easy nor desirable to eliminate all mathematics from a textbook such as this.

Bioprocess Engineering Principles

For the most part, chemical engineers have assumed the responsibility for bioprocess development. Description This welcome new edition discusses bioprocess engineering from the perspective of biology students.

The chapters are organised around broad engineering sub- disciplines such as mass and energy balances, fluid dynamics, transport phenomena and reaction theory, rather than around particular applications ofbioprocessing.

Graduates trained in molecular biology and cell manipulation soon realise that these techniques are only part of the complete picture; bring- ing about the full benefits of biotechnology requires substantial manufacturing capability involving large-scale processing of biological material.

Introduction to Probability Models Sheldon M. Hall who provided lecture notes on this topic. It includes a great deal of new material and has been extensively revised and expanded. Although this textbook is written primarily for senior students and graduates ofbiotechnology, it should also be useful in food- environmental- and civil-engineering Preface xiYcourses.

An Interdisciplinary Challenge 3 Ch. That the same funda- mental engineering principle can be readily applied to a variety of bioprocess industries is illustrated in the worked examples and problems. Mathematical treatment is necessary to show how design equations depend on crucial assumptions; in other cases the equations are so simple and their application so useful that non-engineering scientists should be familiar with them.

Industrial processes employing enzymes are also not listed in Table 1. Doran By Pauline M. In this book, more than problems and calcula- tions encompass a wide range of bioprocess applications involving recombinant cells, plant- and animal-cell cultures and immobilised biocatalysts as well as traditional fermenta- tion systems. Since then, bioprocesses have been developed for an enormous range of commercialproducts, from relatively cheap materials such as industrial alcohol and organic solvents, to expensive specialty chemicals such as antibiotics, therapeuticproteins and vaccines.

Table of contents Bioprocess Development: One of the biggest challenges in preparing the text was determining the appropriate level of mathematics. Scientific breakthroughs in gene expression, protein engineer- ing and cell fusion are being translated by a strengthening biotechnology industry into revolutionary new products and services.

The primary aim of this book is to present the principles of bioprocess engineering in a way that is accessible to biological scientists. By using our website you agree to our use of cookies. Many a student has been enticed by the promise ofbiotech- nology and the excitement of being near the cutting edge of scientific advancement.


However, the value of biotechnology is more likely to be assessed by business, government and con- sumers alike in terms of commercial applications, impact on the marketplace and financial success.

Plant Systematics Michael G Simpson. Yet, while aspects of biochemistry, microbiology and molecu- lar genetics have for many years been included in chemical-engineering curricula, there has been relatively little attempt to teach biotechnologists even those qualitative aspects of engineering applicable to process design.

It does not seek to make biologists into bioprocess engineers, but to expose them to engineering concepts and ways of thinking. We’re featuring millions of their reader ratings on our book pages to help you find egnineering new favourite book.
