Course Objectives 1. To teach the basic principles of microbial metabolism
2. To make students aware of the fact that the metabolism has an extremely complex and tightly regulated structure at genetic, biochemical and environmental levels, even in the case of the simple microorganisms.
3. To inform students on current studies such as improvement of product yields of microbial biotechnological processes, production of new products by means of known genetic and biochemical improvement of metabolism via metabolic engineering and to promote research on that.
Course Description This course covers the major metabolic processes of microorganisms, their control and improvement of microbial metabolic processes for biotechnological production by using current methods such as metabolic engineering. Major metabolic reactions of microorganisms, microbial energy metabolism, control of microbial metabolism, nitrogen metabolism, degradation of organic compounds, synthesis of chemical constituents and products, and metabolic engineering topics are covered in detail throughout this course.
Course Outcomes 1. Gaining basic knowledge about microbial metabolism and ability to design and suggest metabolic engineering approaches to be applied for improving microbial biotechnological processes.
2. Ability to grasp interdisciplinary interactions in the fields of microbial metabolism and metabolic engineering.
3. Ability to present the investigated subject efficiently in oral, visual and written forms.
4. Assessing the specialistic knowledge and skill gained through the study with a critical view and directing one’s own learning process.
5. Ability to work in a team for research projects.
Pre-requisite(s) None.
