Modelling is often unfamiliar to biologists and chemists, who nevertheless need modelling techniques in their work. The general field of biochemical reaction engineering is one that requires a very close interdisciplinary interaction between applied microbiologists, biochemists, biochemical engineers. The purpose of this workshop is to provide the mathematical tools (i.e MATLAB) necessary for the quantitative analysis of biological kinetics and other biological process phenomena. The engineer and the biologist are freed from the difficulties of mathematical solution and can tackle complex problems that were impossible before. Mass balances, when combined with kinetic rate equations, to form simple mathematical models, can be used with very great effect as a means of planning, conducting and analyzing experiments. Models are especially important as a means of obtaining a better understanding of process phenomena. Models, when solved interactively by computer simulation, become much more understandable to non-engineers. The Berkeley Madonna simulation language will be used in this workshop. In this way it is possible to immediately determine the influence of changing various operating parameters on the bioreactor performance - a real learning experience. The simulation examples serve to enforce the learning process in a very effective manner and also provide hands-on confidence in the use of a simulation language. The participants can program their own examples, by formulating new mass balance equations or by modifying an existing example to a new set of circumstances. Other useful topics include data fitting (using MATLAB) and optimization (using Design Expert) also will be discussed in the workshop.
