Bioreaction Engineering Principles

Front Cover
Plenum Press, 1994 - Medical - 456 pages
A textbook that presents a unified treatment of the principles of bioreaction engineering, based on mathematical modeling but with respect for the complexity of microbial reactions. Following an introduction, are chapters devoted to cellular growth reactions, analysis of reaction rates, modeling of
