Biotechnology is an expansive field incorporating expertise in both the life science and engineering disciplines. In biotechnology, the scientist is concerned with developing the most favourable biocatalysts, while the engineer is directed towards process performance, defining conditions and strategies that will maximize the production potential of the biocatalyst. Increasingly, the synergistic effect of the contributions of engineering and life sciences is recognised as key to the translation of new bioproducts from the laboratory bench to commercial bioprocess. Fundamental to the successful realization of the bioprocess is a need for process engineers and life scientists competent in evaluating biological systems from a cross-disciplinary viewpoint. Bioprocess engineering aims to generate core competencies through an understanding of the complementary biotechnology disciplines and their interdependence, and an appreciation of the challenges associated with the application of engineering principles in a life science context. Initial chapters focus on the microbiology, biochemistry and molecular biology that underpin biocatalyst potential for product accumulation. The following chapters develop kinetic and mass transfer principles that quantify optimum process performance and scale up. The text is wide in scope, relating to bioprocesses using bacterial, fungal and enzymic biocatalysts, batch, fed-batch and continuous strategies and free and immobilised configurations.

  • Details the application of chemical engineering principles for the development, design, operation and scale up of bioprocesses
  • Details the knowledge in microbiology, biochemistry and molecular biology relevant to bioprocess design, operation and scale up
  • Discusses the significance of these life sciences in defining optimum bioprocess performance

About the Author:

Prof Kim Gail Clarke is an academic in the Department of Process Engineering, University of Stellenbosch, and a registered Professional Engineer. She holds a PhD and a BSc (Chemical Engineering), both from the University of Cape Town, SA, and an MSc (Biological and Chemical Engineering) from the University of Birmingham, UK. She has lectured university courses in bioprocess engineering for over 15 years and has twice received the University of Stellenbosch Rector’s Award for Excellence in Education (2007 and 2010). She heads a research group in bioprocess engineering which focuses on the application of chemical engineering principles in the development and optimization of biological processes. Her research is specifically directed towards fundamental kinetic and mass transfer studies which quantify the principles governing process performance and define process strategies for optimization of the production potential of the biocatalyst.

Review:

"In a textbook for a graduate or senior undergraduate one-semester course, Clarke...introduces the complementary biotechnology disciplines and their interdependence, emphasizing the application of engineering principles in a life science context. She covers the historical development; microbiology; metabolic macromolecules; molecular biology; carbon metabolism; enzymes as biocatalysts; microbial kinetics during batch, continuous, and fed-batch processes;..."--ProtoView.com, February 2014
