Biotechnology Volume Vii from the Author: Horst W. Doelle. This Encyclopedia of Biotechnology is a component of the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias. Biotechnology draws on the pure biological sciences (genetics, animal cell culture, molecular biology, microbiology, biochemistry, embryology, cell biology) and in many instances is also dependent on knowledge and methods from outside the sphere of biology (chemical engineering, bioprocess engineering, information technology, biorobotics). This 15-volume set contains several chapters, each of size 5000-30000 words, with perspectives, applications and extensive illustrations. It carries state-of-the-art knowledge in the field and is aimed, by virtue of the several applications, at the following five major target audiences: University and College Students, Educators, Professional Practitioners, Research Personnel and Policy Analysts, Managers, and Decision Makers and NGOs.

Industrial Biotechnology Of Vitamins Biopigments And Antioxidants from the Author: Erick J. Vandamme. Vitamins are a group of physiologically very important, chemically quite complex organic compounds, that are essential for humans and animals. Some vitamins and other growth factors behave as antioxidants, while some can be considered as biopigments. As their chemical synthesis is laborious, their biotechnology-based synthesis and production via microbial fermentation has gained substantial interest within the last decades. Recent progress in microbial genetics and in metabolic engineering and implementation of innovative bioprocess technology has led to a biotechnology-based industrial production of many vitamins and related compounds. Divided into three sections, this volume covers: 1. water-soluble vitamins 2. fat-soluble vitamin compounds and 3. other growth factors, biopigments, and antioxidants. They are all reviewed systematically: from natural occurrence and assays, via biosynthesis, strain development, to industrially-employed biotechnological syntheses and applications.

Chromatographic And Membrane Processes In Biotechnology from the Author: C.A. Costa. Separation processes in biotechnology are of increasing industrial importance since they entail the major costs of bioprocessing especially when high purity is required. Chromatography and membranes are two of the most important technologies used for direct treatment of fermentation broths as well as for high resolution steps in product purification. The theoretical foundations of chromatographic and membrane processes are well understood for the case of small molecules. Nevertheless there is a need to adapt and further develop that knowledge to the processing of large biological molecules. This is being achieved with the contribution of other areas like molecular biology and materials science. The objective of this NATO Advanced Study Institute is to present an updated treatment of the fundamentals of chromatographic and membrane processes with special relevance in bioprocessing.This volume collects the lectures presented at this Institute. The lectures are arranged in five chapters. Chapter I deals with chromatographic processes covering topics like equilibrium, kinetics and contacting devices. Membrane processes and some applications in biotechnology are treated in chapter 2. Chapter 3 is devoted to affinity chromatographic and membrane processes. Chapter 4 considers the current developments on chromatographic supports and membranes both from the constitutive materials and form points of view. Scale-up, optimization and reaction/separation integration are the topics covered in chapter 5. We are very grateful to all lecturers and participants that made possible this Institute. Financial support from NATO Scientific Affairs Division, INIC, JNICT, FLAD, University of Ac;ores and DRT Ac;ores is gratefully acknowledged.
