Learn the fundamentals of biotechnology with this course designed for chemical engineers working in design, operations, or other support functions.
The course focuses on the methods used to develop cell lines to produce a variety of biological drug products. It begins by presenting an overview of microorganisms, other cells, and identification techniques commonly used. These concepts are then used to introduce the methods used for cell line development, metabolic engineering, and several “omics” tools. The final sessions, focus on expression and purification of biological drug products; monitoring cell growth and product expression; and fermentation/cell culture.
