Biomanufacturing means growing living cells (bacterial, yeast, and animal cells) in large tanks called bioreactors and inducing them to produce a protein that serves as a medicine. That protein then must be separated from other cellular components and purified by using techniques that exploit its properties to isolate it away from other cellular proteins. Then technicians use analytical techniques to prove the purity of the isolated protein. In the future Biomanufacturing will be expanded to include the industrial production of biofuels, biomaterials, stem cells, and other products currently manufactured using chemical rather than biological techniques. Solano Community College is exploring the addition of these elements to its program.
This table represents the sequence of course offerings for the first cohort that will begin the degree program in Fall 2017. Currently each course is actively being taken through the Solano College Academic Senate’s curriculum approval process. Equipment has been purchased for the laboratory courses and faculty are designing the laboratory learning modules.

Five SCC staff and faculty members put their talents to work recently and created 100 pottery bowls to be used in the upcoming Empty Bowls fundraisers. Kathy Kearns, Rod Guyer, John Lloyd, Marc Lancet, and Tri Tran got behind the wheels and made bowls that will be used to serve soup at the Fairfield Food Bank Warehouse on Oct. 15 and the Concord Food Bank Warehouse on Oct. 16. When the soup is finished, attendees can even keep the bowls.
Besides the meal of soup and bread, the program will include information about Food Bank efforts and a raffle. Both events will be held from 4-6 p.m.
