The influence of modern techniques on different branches of microbiology such as agriculture, environment, industrial, medical, etc. has been tremendous. The major aspect of modern techniques has been on better understanding of the inherent nature of enzymes, thereby, opening new vistas to alter their native characteristics, like catalytic activity, substrate specificity and heat and pH stability. The plethora of scientific information available has also led to better understanding of folding and denaturation mechanisms of proteins. The present volume covers these and many other developments made in the fields of microbiology and biotechnology in recent past for the benefit of under graduates, post graduates and research scholars doing course work in colleges, universities and research centres. Topics being covered in this volume are: •Molecular biology of microbial polygalacturonases •Lipase/esterase-catalyzed synthesis of aliphatic polyesters •Physiological and biotechnological applications of proteolytic enzymes •Molecular engineering for microbial lipases with organic solvents tolerance •Improving microbial xylanases for commercial applications •Advances in applications and future prospects of microbial exopolysaccharides •Phosphate regulation in the antibiotic-producers streptomycete •Bacterial adrenergic receptor kinases for host-pathogen cross talk •Current research and future directions on biofilms in chronic wounds •Peptide antibiotics of haloarchaea as an alternative to clinical antibiotics •Mechanisms behind the establishment of coagulase negative Staphylococci as successful nosocomial pathogens •Recent advances and challenges in microbial biotechnology •Industrial applications of microbial biotechnology •Biotechnological properties of autochtonous yeasts in winemaking •Synthesis and applications of microalgal biofuels •Exploring bacteria as potential bio-fertilizers for agricultural crops •Marine endophytic fungi productivity •Synergistic effects of probiotics and prebiotics on human health •Food grade microbial pigments •Biosurfactant based production of Bacillus and Pseudomonas bio-control agents •Biochemical routes for biogas production and controlling factors This volume contains 21 chapters from 58 researchers and/or academicians representing 6 nations, namely Brazil, China, Egypt, India, Spain and United States of America giving an overview of the various research activities being carried out in different parts of the world on Microbial Biotechnology.
