Description

Microorganisms are a major part of the Earth’s biological diversity. Although a lot of research has been done on microbial diversity, most of it is fragmented. This book creates the need for a unified text to be published, full of information about microbial diversity from highly reputed and impactful sources. Recent Advancements in Microbial Diversity brings a comprehensive understanding of the recent advances in microbial diversity research focused on different bodily systems, such as the gut. Recent Advancements in Microbial Diversity also discusses how the application of advanced sequencing technologies is used to reveal previously unseen microbial diversity and show off its function.

Key Features

  • Gives insight into microbial diversity in different bodily systems
  • Explains novel approaches to studying microbial diversity
  • Highlights the use of omics to analyze the microbial community and its functional attributes
  • Discusses the techniques used to examine microbial diversity, including their applications and respective strengths and weaknesses

Readership

Microbiologists, biotechnologists, biochemists
