Can someone tell me the uses of cells grown in fermentors for the food industry, pharmaceutical and the proteomics industry? c:
For the food industry, microbes such as L. lactis are used for dairy products such as cheese.
Pharmaceuticals, a very typical example is the use of E. coli containing a plasmid with a human insulin gene (to produce insulin on a large scale.
Proteomics, cells grown in fermentors can be used to produce important enzymes (which are proteins) on a large scale.
All of these processes are vital for global industry currently.
