Advances in Applied Microbiology continues to be one of the most widely read and authoritative review sources in microbiology, containing comprehensive reviews of the most current research in applied microbiology. Users will find invaluable references and information on a variety of areas, including protozoan grazing of freshwater biofilms, metals in yeast fermentation processes, the interpretation of host-pathogen dialogue through microarrays, and the role of polyamines in bacterial growth and biofilm formation.

Eclectic volumes are supplemented by thematic volumes on various topics, including Archaea and sick building syndrome.

Key Features

  • Contains contributions from leading authorities
  • Informs and updates on all the latest developments in the field
  • Includes discussions on protozoan grazing of freshwater biofilms, metals in yeast fermentation processes, the interpretation of host-pathogen dialogue through microarrays, and more


All those who deal with today’s microbiology in the Medical and Biotechnological arena
