Leading authorities provide here the practical laboratory procedures for a wide range of processes and products mediated by microorganisms. It provides step-by-step protocols for the most recent developments in such applied biotechnological processes as screening, evolution, production, immobilization, and use of enzymes. It provides a valuable reference source for laboratory and industrial professionals, as well as graduate students in a number of biological disciplines including biotechnology, microbiology, genetics and molecular biology.
