Description

This second edition has been thoroughly updated to include recent advances and developments in the field of fermentation technology, focusing on industrial applications. The book now covers new aspects such as recombinant DNA techniques in the improvement of industrial micro-organisms, as well as including comprehensive information on fermentation media, sterilization procedures, inocula, and fermenter design. Chapters on effluent treatment and fermentation economics are also incorporated. The text is supported by plenty of clear, informative diagrams.

This book is of great interest to final year and post-graduate students of applied biology, biotechnology, microbiology, biochemical and chemical engineering.

Readership

For post-graduate students of applied biology, biotechnology, microbiology, biochemical and chemical engineering.

About the Author

Peter F. Stanbury

Allan Whitaker

Prior to joining the University of Hertfordshire, Allan was a research scientist with ICI working on aspects of fungal physiology and plant tissue culture. His career as Senior Lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire encompassed teaching in microbiology and research in microbial physiology and fermentation technology. Allan retired from the University and continued as a Visiting Lecturer but also combined his interest in local history and microbiology in his research on the history of the brewing industry in Hertfordshire. Allan has taken an advisory role in the development of this edition but the influence he had on the previous two editions very much remains. He is a member of the Microbiology Society and was previously convener of its Teaching Group.
