Peptide Biosynthesis and Processing

Lloyd D. Fricker
July 24, 1991

This book provides a comprehensive review of the field of peptide biosynthesis. Individual chapters range from historical perspectives of the field to current knowledge regarding specific enzymes. Every step from gene to final bioactive peptide is covered in detail. Approximately two thirds of the...

Basic Bioreactor Design

Klaas van't Riet, Johannes Tramper
January 07, 1991

Based on a graduate course in biochemical engineering, provides the basic knowledge needed for the efficient design of bioreactors and the relevant principles and data for practical process engineering, with an emphasis on enzyme reactors and aerated reactors for microorganisms. Includes exercises,...

Extractive Bioconversions

B. Mattiasson
November 30, 1990

Contributors from European and US universities and corporations review recent developments in the integration of downstream processing and bioconversion, describing their experience with many separation technologies, including some still in the experimental stage. The topics include the construction...

Fundamentals of Protein Biotechnology

August 31, 1990

Fills a gap between the existing studies of proteins, which tend to be highly technical and geared toward the practicing protein chemist, and biochemistry textbooks, which focus on general principles. Scientists cover a dozen topics by presenting fundamental principles, an overview, and the practica...

Transfer RNAs and Other Soluble RNAs

Joseph D. Cherayil
August 29, 1990

This fascinating book discusses various methods that have been used from early times to the present for the isolation and characterization of total tRNA, specific tRNAs, and small molecular weight RNAs. Filled with tables and figures, it presents comparative methods and provides an overview of the...

Separation Processes in Biotechnology

Juan A. Asenjo
June 28, 1990

Edited to avoid duplication and favor comprehensiveness, 20 contributors detail the recovery, separation, and purification operations of bioprocess technology. Individual chapters in this classic yet still highly relevant work emphasize concepts that are becoming more and more important when...

Computer Control of Fermentation Processes

Daniel R. Omstead
October 31, 1989

The purpose of this volume is to describe the components, assembly, and implementation of computer-based process control systems. Presented in two sections, it illustrates how such systems have been used to monitor and control industrial fermentation processes as a means to improve our...
