Touching all areas of microbiology Recent developments in Applied Microbiology provides understanding to the application oriented microbial concepts and updates the knowledge with recent developments on related aspects of both microbial biotechnology and medical, agricultural and environmental microbiology.

Key Features

  • Discusses the microbial proteomics and their importance in medical microbiology
  • Explores the emerging trends in preventing current global health problems like cancer and obesity
  • Shows recent approaches in the production of novel enzymes from environmental samples by enrichment culture and metagenomics approach and emerging trends of microorganism in the production of alternative energy
  • Guides readers through the status and recent developments in analytical methods for the detection of foodborne microorganism


(post)graduate students, researchers, scientists and university teachers in applied microbiology and biochemistry
