Industrial Biotechnology Course: Biocatalysis through to Synthetic Biology

Industrial Biotechnology Course: Biocatalysis through to Synthetic Biology

When: 18-20 April 2016

Where: Biochemical Engineering, University College London

This unique module designed in collaboration with the Centre of Process Innovation (CPI) will introduce options for integrating biocatalysis into chemical manufacturing processes, and also explore successful examples of biocatalyst design, process operation and biorefining for sustainable manufacturing. In this module a series of lectures, problem solving case studies, and a practical workshop will provide close interaction with key academic and industrial speakers
