Overview

This welcome new edition discusses bioprocess engineering from the perspective of biology students. It includes a great deal of new material and has been extensively revised and expanded. These updates strengthen the book and maintain its position as the book of choice for senior undergraduates and graduates seeking to move from biochemistry/microbiology/molecular biology to bioprocess engineering.

New to this edition:

  • All chapters thoroughly revised for current developments, with over 200 pgs of new material, including significant new content in:
    • Metabolic Engineering
    • Sustainable Bioprocessing
    • Membrane Filtration
    • Turbulence and Impeller Design
    • Downstream Processing
    • Oxygen Transfer Systems
  • Over 150 new problems and worked examples
  • More than 100 new illustrations

Audience: Senior undergraduate students in applied biology taking final year options in bioprocessing/biotechnology and graduate students in biological sciences taking masters courses, or beginning research in engineering departments. This book should also be useful to undergraduates taking new, emerging courses bridging the gap between biology and engineering, such as BS/BSc in process biotechnology, biotechnology, and bioprocessing. In addition, undergraduates/graduates in chemical engineering taking courses in bioengineering will benefit from this text. Finally, industrial practitioners working in biotechnology, pharmaceutical companies, food industries, and those trained in molecular biology and cell manipulation, who need to acquire knowledge on the principles of large scale processing of biological material.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Doran (Swinburne U. of Technology, Australia) revises her 1995 graduate and undergraduate textbook for students of molecular biology, biotechnology, and related disciples who have little or no engineering background but want to become familiar with the processes by which biological discoveries are transformed into commercial products. Her emphasis is on the underlying scientific and engineering principles rather than on specific biotechnology applications, she says, so most of the material in the first edition remains relevant. There have been some significant developments, however, and she includes new sections on sustainable bioprocessing and metabolic engineering. Overall, she covers introductory matters, material and energy balances, physical processes, and reactions and reactors."—Reference & Research Book News October 2012
