Annual Reports on Fermentation Processes, Volume 1 furnishes a critical account of significant developments concerning fermentation processes. This book discusses the mutation, selection, and optimization of mutagenesis; fermentation substrates; and published accounts of computer-coupled fermentation systems. The waste materials as SCP substrates, immobilized cell processes, and microbial transformations of organic compounds are also elaborated. This publication likewise covers the microbiological and enzymatic conversion of ß-lactam antibiotics, microbiological production of chemical feedstocks, and aeration systems and their performance. Other topics include the toxicology and regulation of enzyme use, general considerations of immobilized enzyme systems, mutational biosynthesis, and biotransformations and the role of precursors. This volume is a good reference for students and researchers interested in fermentation research and developments.
