Proceedings of the Twenty-Eighth Annual Biochemical Engineering Symposium
This series of Annual Biochemical Engineering Symposia was started in 1971 by Professors Larry E. Erickson of Kansas State University and Peter]. Reilly; then of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. It is designed for graduate students and occasionally postdoctoral fellows and undergraduates to present the results of their research and the directions of their future work to audiences not so familiar as those at their home institutions but not so seemingly intimidating as those at national professional meetings. It also serves as a vehicle for those engaged in similar lines of research to become acquainted with each other and with each others' work. To that end, discussions both during the meeting and at social events are encouraged. To improve students' skills in the writing of articles, in general those that follow were first drafted by the students who presented the work. In recent years, the symposium has rotated among the University of Colorado, Boulder; Colorado State University; Iowa State University; the University of Kansas; Kansas State University; the University of Missouri, Columbia; and the University of Oklahoma. This 28th Annual Biochemical Engineering Symposium took place at Iowa State University; Ames, lA, on October 3, 1998.
