2nd BioProScale Symposium "Inhomogenieties in large-scale bioreactors: System biology and process dynamics"

Home Programme Information Exhibition Venue Photos Contact


14 to 16 March 2012, Berlin, Germany

Target groups
Producers of biogas and enzymes, antibiotic production, bioprocess development, pharmaceutical bioprocesses, brewery processes – experts from research & development and industrial practice

Consistent bioprocess development needs to be performed at the perspective of the final process scale. As a result a better understanding of the final industrial scale is an important issue, which includes technical challenges (sensors, modelling tools) and the cellular dynamic regulatory networks and population dynamics.
The 2nd BioProScale Symposium aims to discuss progresses and challenges in the different scientific disciplines. It summarises the current state of knowledge in relation to our understanding of processes in large scale bioreactors for different bio products. The symposium covers related applications starting from food production, white biotechnology and bio based energy/biorefinery processes up to the field of biopharmaceutical production.

Technische Universität Berlin, Department of Bioprocess Engineering, and Institute for Biotechnology and Fermentation in Berlin (IfGB) in cooperation with BioProScale.
