On successful completion of the module, students should be able to:
- Understand the use of, and requirement for, large-scale production of recombinant proteins.
- Explain the concept of mass transfer in bioprocessing, and compare and contrast mass transfer limitations of reactions in homogenous and heterogenous bioreactions.
- Analyse the importance of fluid dynamics in bioprocessing.
- Describe the properties of, and modifications to, lignocellulose that enable its use for bioethanol production by fermentation.
- Critically analyse the types of carbohydrate-degrading enzymes in fungi, and identification and production strategies for their extraction and use.
- Evaluation of nanobiotechnology and its applications in assay development.
- Compare and contrast the various strategies used in modern biotechnology for high-value reagent production.
- Describe and assess the importance of bioprocessing in the generation of biological products (e.g., bioethanol diagnostics, and other biological products).
