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.
- 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).
- Describe the properties of lignocellulose, and enzymes and treatments that can be used to facilitate its use for bioethanol production by fermentation.
- Compare and contrast the methods used for library generation, screening and selection for the directed evolution of enzymes with applications in food processing and household care products.
