Since 1960's biotechnology has become increasingly relevant to the fast growing industries. While microbes have been used for centuries in food and drinks industry, their continued and further investigation has advanced opportunities for their exploitation in almost all industrial sectors. Some businesses have already benefited from advances in applied biotechnology, others have begun to gain tangible profits.
This volume covers topical issues in bio-production, bio-separation, and bio-detection; latest research topics including nano-biotechnology, biorefinery and biofuels, biocatalysis, biomaterials, and microbial fuel cells.
