Bioprocesses industry

Several industries use micro-organisms or yeasts to product substances of commercial interest (in pharmaceutics, green biotechnology, food making...). Novel investigation techniques in microbiology (such as multistage continuous bioreactors) brings new insights on the metabolic functioning of the various strains. This conducts to revisit old models such as Monod's one, and to look for new estimation and piloting strategies. Those questions are quite closed from the ones studied in 4.1 and 4.2 , although the ecological dimension is less present (most of the culture are pure ones). The team is naturally solicited to contribute together with the specialists about problems related to modeling, simulation and control of these bio-processes.
