Basic knowledge of biochemistry and enzyme kinetics.
Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is offered to students of any study field.
The goals of the lecture are to understand biochemical and chemical
principles of traditional and recent biotechnologies and fundamental processes in fermenters and other apparatuses which provide the biotechnological use of metabolic activity of organisms or enzymes.
The content of the lecture includes biochemistry and physiology of organisms applied in biotechnology, selected biotechnological processes (from fermentation products to environment protection), bioprocess kinetics in batch and continuous systems, interpretation of kinetic models in biotechnology and microbial (cell) physiology, and application of immobilized cells and enzymes.
Microbial and enzyme biotechnology, historical survey. Biochemistry, microbiology and engineering principles.
Biochemical and chemical principles of classical and recent biotechnologies. Beer production.
Organic acids, biogas, microbial biomass production as a protein supply, biohydrometallurgy, biotransformation.
