What you will learn

  • Microbes and enzymes

  • Bioreactors and Bioreactor design

The course aims to provide fundamental insights to exploit enzymes and microbes for the manufacturing of products which have a huge industrial significance. It uniquely blends the science and engineering with various biochemical processes to obtain products of diverse fields such as chemicals, food, bio-energy etc. The course introduces bioreactors, its types, operation methods and provides an experimental demonstration of the same. Strategies to obtain higher yields, design of the reactors and production of bio-fuels from microbes are thoroughly explained. Students of various disciplines such as biotechnology, chemical engineering, food engineering, and pharmaceutical industries can be benefited from the course as it discusses the existing bio-process applications such as wine and cheese making, antibiotics and vaccines etc.The course majorly focuses on the applications and allows students to gain practical knowledge rather than mere theory. Major bottlenecks for the operation of biochemical industries will be discussed.
