Metabolic Engineering for Industrial Biotechnology





 

This two-day course will focus on metabolic engineering as applied to high volume/low cost chemicals and materials and the unique choices and approaches that attend work in this area. A world class group of instructors from academia and industry will cover the agenda in an interactive format with case studies throughout. 

 




 

Program Objectives:

  • Gain an appreciation of the distinctive features of applying biotechnology and metabolic engineering in large scale, industrial projects.
  • Survey the tools used in industrial biotechnology, and learn how systems approaches – in both biology and engineering – interact to define and provide direction for experimentation.
  • Develop an historical perspective on the field, and a practical perspective gleaned from exposure to both successful and unsuccessful endeavors.
  • Through case studies, understand the interplay between biology, engineering, and economic requirements, and how both theoretical and empirical approaches are used to move projects forward.
 




 

Who should attend? 

  • At-the-bench metabolic engineers and individuals considering entering this area
  • Fermentation scientists, engineers, biochemists, bioinformaticians, and others who interact and work with metabolic engineering teams
  • Management personnel seeking to understand the unique context of industrial biotechnological projects
