Students will learn about metabolism and metabolic pathways including catabolism and anabolism and variations on these pathways for prokaryotic and anaerobic cells. The role of enzymes in metabolic pathways will be explored including enzyme kinetics and enzyme inhibition along with the application of immobilised enzymes to industrial processing. The control of metabolism will form a central theme, including enzymatic and genetic control. Case studies in Metabolic Engineering will also be developed that concern the bioprocess industries. Metabolic Engineering techniques and Genetic manipulation will also be explored as methods to enable improved cellular and metabolic properties. Practical work (enzyme kinetics)
On completion of this subject students should be able to
