Applied Microbiology by Sanjai Saxena

By Sanjai Saxena

The booklet is orientated in the direction of undergraduates technological know-how and engineering scholars; postgraduates and researchers pursuing the sector of microbiology, biotechnology, chemical - biochemical engineering and pharmacy. numerous functions of microorganisms were lined generally and feature been accurately mirrored extensive in 12 diverse chapters. The ebook starts off with an perception to the various area of interest of microorganisms which were explored and exploited in improvement of varied biotechnological items and eco-friendly strategies. additional, how those microorganisms were genetically converted to enhance the specified features for attaining optimum creation of microbially derived items is mentioned within the moment bankruptcy. significant course of construction of microbially derived items and techniques is thru fermentation expertise and consequently due emphasis on diverse points of fermentation expertise has been given within the next bankruptcy. the improvement and deployment of biopesticides and biofertilizers which locate large software were individually mentioned lower than agricultural purposes. program of microbes for the removing of toxins, restoration of metals and oils has additionally been mentioned below environmental functions. The position of microbial platforms in improvement of fermented meals and drinks have additionally been mentioned in bankruptcy 6. the applying of microbes in construction of commodity chemical substances and superb chemical substances has additionally been mentioned in separate chapters. A bankruptcy has been devoted to the large functions of microbially produced enzymes in several commercial sectors. one other particular aspect of this ebook is explaining the various tools during which wanted features of microorganisms were enhanced for his or her efficacious and cost effective exploitation within the undefined. A bankruptcy is devoted to exploitation of microorganisms in improvement of vaccines for human and veterinary use. eventually, the final bankruptcy discusses the function of immobilization in optimization of commercial approaches and improvement of microbial biosensors for commercial purposes. hence, this ebook is a holistic technique supplying details at the current purposes of microorganisms.

Nitrogen assimilation is important for plant metabolism, and it has been reported that genetically modified rhizobacteria Sinorhizobium meliloti expressing the nif A gene of Klebsiella pneumonia exhibited better root nodulation in alfalfa (Medicago sativa) plants. Further it was also found that the recombinant S. meliloti significantly increased the plant biomass as compared to the wild type. Thus, possibilities exist wherein genetically modified microorganisms living endophytically or colonising in the rhizosphere could be suitably exploited for improving plant growth and yield without genetically modifying them.
