This second edition of the best-selling Manual of Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology (MIMB) brings together in one place the platform biological and engineering methodologies required to develop a successful industrial process through culture isolation and development. It describes the means by which traditional industrial microbiology and biotechnology, as well as modern technology, can be carried out in academic or industrial laboratories, pilot plant, or factory. The editors have enlisted a broad range of experts, including microbial ecologists, physiologists, geneticists, biochemists, molecular biologists, and biochemical engineers, who offer practical experience not found in texts and journals. This comprehensive perspective makes MIMB a valuable "how to" resource, the structure of which resembles the sequence of operation involved in the development of a commercial biological process and product.
