About the Books

Knowledge in microbiology is growing exponentially through the determination of genomic sequences of hundred of microorganisms and the invention of new technologies, such as genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics, to deal with this avalanche of information.

There genomic data are now exploited in thousands of applications, ranging from medicine, agriculture, organic chemistry, public health, and biomass conversion, to bio-mining. Microbial Biotechnology: Fundamentals of Applied Microbiology focuses on ises of major societal importance, enabling an in-depth analysis of these critically importance applications. Some, such as wastewater treatment, have changed only modestly over time; others, such as directed molecular evolution, or “green” chemistry, are as current as today’s headlines.

This fully revised second edition provides an exciting interdisciplinary journey through the rapidly changing landscape of discovery in microbial biotechnology. An ideal text for courses in applied microbiology and biotechnology, this book will also serve as an invaluable overview of recent advances in this field for professional life scientists and for the diverse community of other professionals with interests in biotechnology
