Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Cílem předmětu je uvést studenty do disciplíny zabývající se problematikou minerálních biotechnologií, předmět je zaměřen na základní aspekty biotechnologií v těžbě rud včetně zpracování nerostných surovin a odpadů z těžby. Předmět podává informace o produkci biologicky aktivních látek živými organismy a jejich uplatnění v oblasti minerálních biotechnologií při získávání a úpravě nerostných surovin s ohledem na ochranu životního prostředí. Získané znalosti jsou východiskem pro optimalizaci a řízení bioprocesů s využitím základních znalostí fyziologických charakteristik mikroorganismů.
