Fall. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: CHEME 3900  or permission of instructor. No prior background in biological sciences required.

M. P. DeLisa.

Discusses principles involved in using biomolecules (e.g., antibodies, enzymes, DNA) and living organisms (e.g., bacteria, yeast, tissue cultures) for engineering biological processes.  Examples will be taken from the following application areas: biopharmaceuticals, biofuels, biomedical technologies, foods, and environmental processes.

Outcome 1: Learn and reinforce fundamental biology principles and how to apply them to engineering problems. (a, e)

Outcome 2: Build mathematical models of cell growth, metabolism and bioreactor operation. (a, e, k)

Outcome 3: Learn current methods in biotechnology from critically reading current literature and orally answering questions in class based on reading material. (a, f, g, j)

Outcome 4: Design a biological product as well as a process for its production and manufacturing (team-based design project). (c, d, e, g, j, k)
