Small Scale Biological Production
This course of instruction combines lecture with hands-on design and build of biological processes. The objective is to have the students understand the production of biological agents by demonstration and growth of biological material. The course of instruction focuses on non-state sponsored productions processes and use of easily acquired material for production of biological agents. The initial instruction will provide a general overview of agents, growth characteristics and requirements for production. The students will then be given the opportunity to design and build production processes using commercially available material. The course concludes with analysis of the processes and quality of the product generated.
