Contents

In an introductory part, the position and tasks of
  • chemistry,
  • microbiology,
  • molecular biology and
  • Biochemistry

in the field of bioprocess engineering. The production of genetically optimized microorganisms is also addressed. The main part of the lectures deals with the following fields of work in bioprocess engineering:

  • Fields of application and product groups of bioprocess engineering
  • Technically relevant microorganisms and cell systems
  • Fermentation Media
  • Bioreactors
  • Growth Kinetics
  • Product formation in bioprocesses
  • Basics of enzyme kinetics
  • Integrated processes and process development
  • Legal basis for the operation of biotechnological plants
  • Process planning and development
