Microbial Physiology and Fermentation Technology

Delft University of Technology

This very successful course will be held in 2019 for the 31th time! The course aims to familiarize participants with the integrated, interdisciplinary approach required in modern biotechnology. Microbial physiologists, metabolic engineers and (bio)process engineers from the faculty staff, together with invited (inter)national experts from other universities and industry, will offer a combination of lectures, exercises and demonstration experiments. In this way, the course will present an intensive and in-depth treatment of the state of the art. At the same time, the course provides the necessary link between, on one hand, fundamental subjects (e.g. stochiometry/kinetics of metabolic networks, physiology/systems biology) and, on the other hand, applications for design of microorganisms and and optimization of large-scale biotechnological processes.

Who should attend? This Advanced Course is aimed at professionals (MSc, PhD or equivalent experience) in microbiology, biochemistry or biochemical engineering with a basic working knowledge of the two other disciplines. Also, molecular biologists with a microbial background may apply. The course is primarily aimed at those already employed in industry who wish to up-date their theoretical knowledge and practical insight in this field. In addition, this Advanced Course is an option in the two-year postgraduate programs of Delft University of Technology.
