Bioreactors. Instructor: Prof G. K. Suraishkumar, Department of Biotechnology, IIT Madras.

Bioprocesses are used by any biotechnology/pharma industry to produce biological products that are widely used. This course, bioreactors, will consider the heart of any bioprocess. It will present all aspects that are relevant for an appreciation of all relevant aspects of bioreactors. This course is expected to be of interest to students who want to learn about bioreactors, teachers who want to better understand the basis of their material, as well as industry personnel who are looking to better understand the principles and apply them to creatively solve their existing challenges.
