In the amazing advancement of process biotechnology, the pressing need of the current millennium is to exploit biological processes. In order to do this various fundamental aspects of process biotechnology need to be understood adequately. This book in its second edition is intended for teaching senior or graduate level courses, and as a selfstudy text for practising biochemical engineers, biotechnologists, applied and industrial microbiologists, cell biologists, scientists involved in bioprocessing research and development and other related fields.It continues to give intensive quantitative training in the industry/ practical applications of the principles of biosystems, and finding the solution of bioprocessing problems.

Key Features
Integration of academic and practical bioprocessing principles towards process biotechnology development.
Research generated data never before published in a single collated text.
