Description

Recent Advances and Future Perspectives of Microbial Metabolites: Applications in Biomedicine sheds new light on various applications of microbial metabolites in the biomedical sector. The purpose of this book is to integrate the latest research advancements on the application of microbial metabolites in the medical industry into a single platform. In 10 chapters, the significance of biomedical applications and future therapeutic applications of microbial metabolites in human health are highlighted. Several chapters are dedicated to the role of microbial metabolites in precision medicine like the impact of the activities of microbial metabolites in antitumor and antidiabetic agents and immunosuppressive activities. It also provides a roadmap for drugs discovery based on antimicrobial products and the effect of microbial metabolites on humans’ health and the immune system. The book finalizes with a chapter on the use of microbial metabolites in OMICS technology. Recent Advances and Future Perspectives of Microbial Metabolites: Applications in Biomedicine targets researchers from both academia and industry, professors, and graduate students from microbiology, molecular biology, biotechnology, and immunology.
