Description

A richly illustrated text designed to provide examples of recently developed methods for the production of amino acids, derivatives and biocatalysts. Describes such new technologies as development of membrane reactors, use of enzymes in nonaqueous solvents, application of recombinant DNA techniques for the cloning and expression of genes, newly discovered enzymes and microbial strains and immobilized biocatalytic systems.
