Industrial Microbiology: An Introduction


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Michael J. Waites, Neil L. Morgan, John S. Rockey, Gary Higton

Of major economic, environmental and social importance, industrial microbiology involves the utilization of microorganisms in the production of a wide range of products, including enzymes, foods, beverages, chemical feedstocks, fuels and pharmaceuticals, and clean technologies employed for waste treatment and pollution control.

Aimed at undergraduates studying the applied aspects of biology, particularly those on biotechnology and microbiology courses and students of food science and biochemical engineering, this text provides a wide-ranging introduction to the field of industrial microbiology. The content is divided into three sections:

  • key aspects of microbial physiology, exploring the versatility of microorganisms, their diverse metabolic activities and products
  • industrial microorganisms and the technology required for large-scale cultivation and isolation of fermentation products
  • investigation of a wide range of established and novel industrial fermentation processes and products

Written by experienced lecturers with industrial backgrounds, Industrial Microbiology provides the reader with groundwork in both the fundamental principles of microbial biology and the various traditional and novel applications of microorganisms to industrial processes, many of which have been made possible or enhanced by recent developments in genetic engineering technology.

  • A wide-ranging introduction to the field of industrial microbiology
  • Based on years of teaching experience by experienced lecturers with industrial backgrounds
  • Explains the underlying microbiology as well as the industrial application.

Content is divided into three sections:

1. key aspects of microbial physiology, exploring the versatility of microorganisms, their diverse metabolic activities and products

2. industrial microorganisms and the technology required for large-scale cultivation and isolation of fermentation products

3. investigation of a wide range of established and novel industrial fermentation processes and products

Cancer Vaccines (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology)


This volume focuses on the laboratory and clinical experience with targeting viral onco-antigens, while also reviewing the approaches to targeting self-cancer antigens in cancers of non-viral origin, where self-tolerance has been a challenge. It emphasizes the importance of selecting the right vaccine platform to induce a successful immune response against cancer antigens. In addition, the volume discusses the advances made with genetic vaccines, including recent advances with  DNA vaccines and the rapid transition of mRNA vaccines from the laboratory to bedside. The new avenues opening up for cancer immunotherapy underline the importance of combinational approaches using cancer vaccines with costimulatory antibodies, which may dramatically improve cancer treatment.
This book is intended for all translational researchers and clinicians who aspire to develop novel vaccination approaches for cancer patients with unmet clinical needs.

Clinical Virology


The essential reference of clinical virology

Virology is one of the most dynamic and rapidly changing fields of clinical medicine. For example, sequencing techniques from human specimens have identified numerous new members of several virus families, including new polyomaviruses, orthomyxoviruses, and bunyaviruses.

Clinical Virology, Fourth Edition, has been extensively revised and updated to incorporate the latest developments and relevant research. Chapters written by internationally recognized experts cover novel viruses, pathogenesis, epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention, organized into two major sections:

  • Section 1 provides information regarding broad topics in virology, including immune responses, vaccinology, laboratory diagnosis, principles of antiviral therapy, and detailed considerations of important organ system manifestations and syndromes caused by viral infections.
  • Section 2 provides overviews of specific etiologic agents and discusses their biology, epidemiology, pathogenesis of disease causation, clinical manifestations, laboratory diagnosis, and management.

Clinical Virology provides the critical information scientists and health care professionals require about all aspects of this rapidly evolving field.

Antimicrobial Drug Resistance: Clinical and Epidemiological Aspects, Volume 2


The two volumes included in Antimicrobial Drug Resistance, Second Edition is an updated, comprehensive and multidisciplinary reference covering the area of antimicrobial drug resistance in bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites from basic science, clinical, and epidemiological perspectives. This newly revised compendium reviews the most current research and development on drug resistance while still providing the information in the accessible format of the first edition. The first volume, Antimicrobial Drug Resistance: Mechanisms of Drug Resistance, is dedicated to the biological basis of drug resistance and effective avenues for drug development. With the emergence of more drug-resistant organisms, the approach to dealing with the drug resistance problem must include the research of different aspects of the mechanisms of bacterial resistance and the dissemination of resistance genes as well as research utilizing new genomic information. These approaches will permit the design of novel strategies to develop new antibiotics and preserve the effectiveness of those currently available. The second volume, Antimicrobial Drug Resistance: Clinical and Epidemiological Aspects, is devoted to the clinical aspects of drug resistance. Although there is evidence that restricted use of a specific antibiotic can be followed by a decrease in drug resistance to that agent, drug resistance control is not easily achieved. Thus, the infectious diseases physician requires input from the clinical microbiologist, antimicrobial stewardship personnel, and infection control specialist to make informed choices for the effective management of various strains of drug-resistant pathogens in individual patients. This 2-volume set is an important reference for students in microbiology, infectious diseases physicians, medical students, basic scientists, drug development researchers, microbiologists, epidemiologists, and public health practitioners.

Applied Biomedical Microbiology: A Biofilms Approach


From the slippery covering on rocks in a stream, to the clogging slime in a bathtub drain, biofilms are present in everyday life in a variety of forms. This seemingly harmless build-up also accounts for 80 percent of all microbial infections. With chapters authored by experienced contributors from academia and industry, Applied Biomedical Microbiology: A Biofilms Approach demonstrates effective ways to combat the health and economic havoc that biofilms are wreaking, while also tapping into their positive potential.

Replete with Tables and Illustrations, Many in Color
Under the editorial guidance of esteemed industrial microbiologist Dr. Daryl Paulson, this book presents an in-depth discussion of medically challenging biofilms. It provides a solid foundation in the basic microbiology of biofilms and then goes on to discuss the biofilms associated with medical devices, catheters, and dental unit water lines as well as those that impact cardiovascular medicine, the gastrointestinal system, periodontal disease, and chronic wounds. This informative work concludes with an exploratory chapter of the various methods used to investigate biofilms.

Applied Biomedical Microbiology: A Biofilms Approach presents key information clearly and concisely – a useful guide for environmental, food, and water microbiologists as well as biochemists, pharmaceutical scientists, and product and biofilm engineers.
