Learning outcomes of the course unit:
|After completion of the subject the student understands the issue of the bioactive metabolites production (antibiotics, enzymes, organic acids, vitamins, mycotoxins, pigments, aromatic substances, antifungal, herbicide, insecticide, pesticide compounds, stimulators of plant growth, etc.) by microorganisms. Student will be able to characterize the microorganisms, which metabolites can be used, in particular, in the food, agricultural, pharmaceutical or cosmetic practice. Student will learn knowledge about their use in biotechnology and the ways to control their metabolism in the laboratory conditions.|
Primary and secondary metabolites of microorganisms. Bioactive products of microorganisms. Metabolism of productive microorganisms and influencing factors. Microorganisms utilisable in biotechnology. The regulation of metabolism of microorganisms for the benefit of the bioactive metabolites biosynthesis. Methods of detection and extraction of bioactive substances.
