This course is a continuation of Fermentation Technology 1 and focuses on bacterial fermentation in a laboratory setting. The course emphasizes the biological and genetic aspects of bacteria and the role of bacteria in the production of modern biotechnologies. Technologies particular to both batch and continuous fermentation processes and product identification and recovery are explored. Students are placed in a production-styled laboratory setting to produce and purify a particular bacterial product following current industry standards and protocols. Field trips to local industrial installations will be used to highlight and clarify real-world applications.
