The present book introduces the current state of the art for the production of biofuels and biochemicals from cellulosic biomass using a variety of microbes including photosynthetic organisms. This book may be useful for undergraduate and graduate students as well as researchers in the related area to understand the current status and present an overview of the whole process. This may also help researchers to see the limiting process and promote research toward creating innovation based on the knowledge gained from this book. (Imprint: Novinka )
