Description

Everybody involved in biotechnology will appreciate having this volume at their fingertips. It contains the biological background material which is indispensable for the development of biotechnological processes and offers a unique collection of current information on the basic biology (ecology, taxonomy, biochemistry, physiology, and genetics) of industrially important organisms.
The first part of the book presents the biological aspects of cell structure, organization, and metabolism to obtain a better understanding of the general function of cells. The second part deals with a large assemblage of insustrially important organisms. All of this information will be a useful basis for those who suddenly find themselves working on a new biotechnological project.
Topics included are: Cell Structure/ Metabolism/ Growth of Microorganisms/ Metabolic Design/ Immobilized Organisms/ Methylotrophs/ Pseudomonads/ Yeasts/ Filamentous Fungi/ Bacteriophages/ Cell Cultures
