Bioprocess Engineering : Basic Concepts

John Wiley and Sons

Publication date: 


ISBN 0134782151
This is an interesting book since it views biotechnology (and biology/microbiology) through the eyes of a chemical engineer. It has an excellent section on the history of the field. It also had several dense and thorough chapters on biology to bring engineers up to speed. I use this as a reference quite a bit. It is written for engineers at the senior or graduate level.
