Core engineering courses taught by Dr. Sriram

ENCH215: Chemical Engineering Analysis (Fall 2008, Fall 2009, Fall 2010)
ENCH300: Chemical Process Thermodynamics (Spring 2009, Spring 2010)
BIOE120: Biology for Engineers (Spring 2011, Spring 2012)

Elective course: Metabolic Pathway Engineering

Metabolic Pathway Engineering: ENCH468M/BIOE489L (undergraduate version), ENCH648M/BIOE689L (graduate version), (Fall 2011)

Credits: 3; Meeting time and venue: MW 5:30-6:45, CHE 2136; Prerequisites: ENCH250, ENCH440 or equivalent (no previous exposure to biology needed)

This course will cover the state-of-the-art in metabolic engineering, with a focus on the analysis and engineering of metabolic pathways through (chemical) engineering principles. Topics covered include: (1) overview of biochemistry and metabolism; (2) metabolic flux analysis and isotope labeling illustrated with examples from the recent scientific literature; (3) technologies for engineering metabolic pathways; (4) metabolic control analysis and pathway regulation; (5) applications of metabolic engineering to synthesis of biofuels and therapeutics; (6) specialized and related subjects such as protein engineering and synthetic biology.
