Advances in Biochemical Engineering/Biotechnology is celebrating 50 years!

Read about the insights on the past 50 years from our Managing Series editor Thomas Scheper below.

"The first volume of the Advances in Biochemical Engineering/Biotechnology was edited by Tarun Ghose and Armin Fiechter in 1970. It was the declared aim of the editors to bring together all the different players in the emerging new field of ‘biotechnology’ which had just begun to reveal its vast potential in applications for the large-scale production of antibiotics and amino acids. Within the next 25 years, under the editorship of Armin Fiechter, more than fifty volumes of the Advances series provided a prominent showcase for this fascinating field and highlighted its growing importance in areas such as medicine, the food and fodder industry, renewable energy, and personal care.
In 1995, we decided to focus on special topic volumes of ABE to really delve into all facets of biotechnological research and development. These special volumes presented collaborative work from researchers from various fields, ranging from fundamental molecular studies to industrial engineering, and shining a light on the pathways from basic research to industrial application and realisation. The main focal topics were novel fields in medical research, such as tissue engineering, stem cell research or antibody production, bioanalytics, bioprocess monitoring or usage of biotechnological products in daily life, the development and production of new products in modern food industry, such as aromas or nutraceuticals, or the usage of agricultural by-products for the production of biofuels or in bioraffineries.
More than 125 special volumes were published within the last 25 years, documenting the tremendous significance and impact of modern biotechnology not only for the transition to a sustainable biobased industry, but also for personalized medicine.
We are now entering the next 25 years of ABE and heralding in a new era in biotechnology where digitalization is set to be a game changer for the field. Cells and biomolecules will be designed from scratch in silico and modern genetic engineering tools, such as CRISPR/CAS9, will bring these digital solutions to reality. Artificial intelligence and machine learning tools will help to design stable, state-of-the-art production processes within a fraction of the time currently needed."
