CHEN.5860 Biotechnology Processing Projects Laboratory (Formerly 10.586)

Id: 002929 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


Development of manufacturing processes for the products of biotechnology are followed through a series of process unit operations. Following the synthesis, purification and formulation of a specific enzyme throughout the course, students examine interactions between process steps and evaluate the impact of each on the total production process. As a final project, students assume the role of project team leader, developing a commercial-scale production process for the enzyme.
