Intentionally breaking with the classical biology-centered description of marine organisms and their items, this reference emphasizes microbial know-how over uncomplicated biology, atmosphere it except its predecessors. As such, it systematically covers the expertise at the back of high-value compounds to be used as prescribed drugs, nutraceuticals or cosmetics, from prospecting to construction issues.
Following a definition of the sphere, the publication is going directly to deal with all industrially very important points of marine microbial biotechnology. the 1st major half incorporates a description of the foremost creation organisms, from archaebacteria to cyanobacteria to algae and symbionts, together with their genetic engineering. the rest 4 elements examine commercially very important compounds produced via those microorganisms including their functions. all through, the emphasis is on technological concerns, and the long run power of those organisms or compound sessions is discussed
A worthy and forward-looking source for cutting edge biotechnologists in in addition to in academia.
