The development of biotechnology over the last 20 years and particularly the use of recombinant DNA techniques are expanding the opportunities for human profit of living resources. Microbial Enzymes and Biotransformation provides practical experimental laboratory procedures for a wide range of enzymes and biotransformations mediated by microorganisms. In addition, it provides a step-by-step description of the most recent developments in applied biotechnological processes useful for screening, evolution, production, immobilization, and use of enzymes.
