Details

The book “Industrial Microbiology: Microbes in Process<SUP>TM</SUP>” consists of a total of 17 chapters contributed by experts from ten different countries across the globe. The book is divided into six research areas such as Biotechnological Potential of Microbes, Biofuels, Biofertilizers, Food Microbiology, Microbial Enzymes and Metabolites containing a minimum of two chapters each. It serves as a comprehensive compilation of articles that reveal the dynamic processes performed by microorganisms in our daily life as we live in complete harmony with these Leeuwenhoek`s animalcules, we must learn to achieve and maximize the benefits from such microscopic organisms. The theme of the volume is focused more on the benefits that mankind can harness from these microbes with which we interact constantly.
