      The goalThe student receives the necessary knowledge about the production and use of microbial biomass and its constituents in the food industry, medicine and agriculture.
      The outcomeThrough the planned curriculum and seminar work, students will acquire adequate knowledge of raw materials, production conditions of the microbial biomass and the importance and application of microbial biomass and its constituents in a particular industry. The acquired knowledge will be able to apply in engineering practice.
      Contents of lecturesGeneral concepts of microbial biomass production and the importance of production ; Synthesis of biomass and its composition ; Raw materials for the production of microbial biomass and its constituents ; Primary and secondary raw materials ; Preparatory operations for the production of microbial biomass ; Production of microbial biomass on carbohydrate, starch, petrochemical raw materials and their commercial value ; Production of algae and constituents (factors affecting production, the main technological parameters) ; Processing and application of microbial biomass in the diet of humans and animals ; Production and application of cellular constituents ; Use of microorganisms in food industry, medicine and agriculture and the environment.
