In biotechnology biothermodynamics apply physical properties to biochemical systems and biological systems. The first law of thermodynamics states that energy can be transferred from one form to another, but it can never be created or destroyed in biological systems. The second law of thermodynamics is the amount of disorder in a system can be quantified in biological systems.
Application of thermodynamics in biochemical engineering to rationalize bioprocess development and obviate a substantial fraction of this need for tedious experimental work.
