Catalysis through

  1. 1. CATALYSIS through METABOLIC ENGINEERING & BIO-CHEMICAL ENGINEERING for INDUSTRIAL BIO-TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT
  2. 2. <ul><li>Research in </li></ul><ul><li>INDUSTRIAL BIOTECHNOLOGY & METABOLIC ENGINEERING </li></ul><ul><li>is based on the basic principles of </li></ul><ul><li>chemical engineering , </li></ul><ul><li>e.g. reaction engineering, momemtum -, heat - , and mass - transfer </li></ul><ul><li>i n relation with the basic sciences, </li></ul><ul><li>e.g. math e m a tics, physics, chemistry (physical chemistry and biochemistry) , biology (industrial microbiology and genetic engineering). </li></ul>
  3. 3. Q-1: What can be produced by biotechnological processes? A-1: Biomolecules. Q-2: Which industries produce biomolecules? A-2: Bio-chemical process industries.
  4. 4. Q-3: What are the bioprocess industries (sectors) producing biomolecules? A-3: B iomolecules are produced by: 1. Pharmaceutical biotechnology industry e.g. antibiotics, vitamins, therapeutic proteins 2. Enzyme production industry e.g. proteases , glucose isomerase, benzaldehyde lyase 3. Basic biochemicals industry e.g. amino acids , organic acids, ethanol 4.Classical biotechnology industry e.g. Beer, wine, yeast.
  5. 5. <ul><li>Q-4: How  biomolecules are produced? A-4: By using microorganisms (or plant cell lines, and animal cell lines ) as </li></ul><ul><li>micro - bioreactors within bioreactor systems. </li></ul>
  6. 6. cell : micro-bioreactor medium composition pH T DO Q-5: How  biomolecules are produced? A-5: In the cell... transfer metabolic control P synthesis degradation use
  7. 7. ... t hrough intracellular biochemical reaction network:
  8. 8. <ul><li>Q-6: Do chemical engineering students need any other background? </li></ul><ul><li>A-6: Graduate program students , e.g, MSc, have to take seven courses , two of which can be selected from under-graduate program courses . </li></ul><ul><li>U nder-graduate courses related with “ molecular genetics, m icrobiology and biochemistry ” are appropriate for those planning to work in b io - chemical engineering reserach fields . </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Q-7: Which concepts of chemical engineering education, </li></ul><ul><li>find applications of theory? </li></ul><ul><li>A - 7: B io - chemical engineering is based on basic principles of chemical engineering . Y ou will find the applications for: </li></ul><ul><li>Reaction engineering (e.g. calculation of intracellular reaction rates, and structured kinetic models for production in the bioreactor ) </li></ul><ul><li>Mass and heat transfer (e.g. mass and energy balances) </li></ul><ul><li>Transport phenomena (e.g. mass transfer coefficients) </li></ul><ul><li>Separation processes (e.g. high technology separation processes, affinity chromatagrapyh, and ultra - filtration) </li></ul><ul><li>Process control (e.g. PID control of measurements in the bioreactor ) </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Q-8: : Can students from basic sciences (genetic engineering, biology, chemistry and mathematics) achieve graduate work in my research group ? </li></ul><ul><li>A -8 : Y ES . Through multi-disciplinary graduate programme e.g., Graduate Programs of: </li></ul><ul><li>Biotechnology , and </li></ul><ul><li>Biomedical Engineering ( Molecular Engineering Track ) </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Q-9: : Can graduates from other engineering disciplines achieve graduate work in my research group ? </li></ul><ul><li>A -9 : Y ES . Through Chemical Engineering and multi-disciplinary graduate programs, e.g., Graduate Programs of: </li></ul><ul><li>Biotechnology , and </li></ul><ul><li>Biomedical Engineering ( Molecular Engineering Track ) </li></ul>
