Society for Biological Engineering (SBE)

SBE is a global technological community that promotes the integration of engineering with biology and realize its benefits through bioprocessing, biomedical, and biomolecular applications. SBE provides opportunities for interaction of engineers and scientists, develops products and services bring value to the broad biological engineering community, and infuses awareness of biological engineering among all functions and activities of AIChE.

Forest Bioproducts Division (FBP)

The Forest Bioproducts Division promotes knowledge sharing and networking on topics dealing with products obtained from forest resources and other lignocellulosic materials.

Your Personal Genome for $1,000?

SBE Special Section
IBM scientists from four fields — nanofabrication, microelectronics, physics and biology — are collaborating to develop a “DNA transistor” that could make obtaining a personalized genome analysis easier, faster, and cheaper — ultimately as low as $...

Biotransformations for a Green Future

SBE Special Section
Susan Truesdell
Enzyme and microbial biotransformations offer green chemistry alternatives for performing difficult or non-selective chemical reactions.

Bioreactor Design for Chemical Engineers

Back To Basics
Gregory T. Benz
Fermentation processes are based on chemical engineering principles. Understand these concepts to achieve optimal bioreactor design.

Deciphering the Mechanisms of Therapeutic Protein Production

SBE Special Section
Kevin J. Kayser, Matthew V. Caple, Christoph L. Bausch, Trissa Borgschulte, Daniel W. Allison
Demand for therapeutic recombinant proteins will eventually exceed current production capabilities. This is a major driver in further understanding Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cell biology, which is the cell line of choice for producing these...

Chemical Engineering in the Pharmaceutical Industry: R&D to Manufacturing

October, 2010
This book deals with various unique elements in the drug development process within chemical engineering science and pharmaceutical R&D. The book is intended to be used as a professional reference and potentially as a text book reference in pharmaceutical engineering and pharmaceutical sciences...
