2. An Overview of Biological Basics

A basic understanding of biology is essential to the biochemical engineer. Here we present selected aspects of basic biology at a level that will allow the student to function as a biochemical engineer. Although specific courses in biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, and cell biology provide much more depth, most engineering students do not have an opportunity to take three or four courses in the biological sciences, and some have no opportunity to take any of these courses. Thus, we have selected the parts of microbiology, biochemistry, genetics, and cell biology most directly relevant to bioprocesses to emphasize throughout chapters 2 to 8 and present this material with examples of application to bioprocesses. ...
