Products derived from genetically engineered microorganisms

Bioreactor Design

In Chapter 12 we saw how recombinant DNA technology can be used to genetically modify microorganisms so that they produce commercially important proteins such as human insulin. This is done by incorporating the gene for the desired protein into an PRODUCTS DERIVED FROM GENETICALLY ENGINEERED MICROORGANISMS 419 PRODUCTS DERIVED FROM GENETICALLY ENGINEERED MICROORGANISMS 419 Figure 17.7 A continuous flow stirred tank reactor. Parameters such as pH and concentrations of specific metabolites are...
