This work contains the Proceedings of the 36th Biochemical Engineering Symposium, which was held at Kansas State University on Saturday, April 21, 2007. The original schedule for the meeting is shown with all of the submitted presentations. Unfortunately, because of an auto accident, the students from Colorado State University were not able to arrive and make their presentations. The actual program included 13 oral presentations and 9 posters. Some of the CSU manuscripts are included in the proceedings.
