This handbook discusses how microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, yeasts) can be modified to various extents by means of molecular genetics or genetic engineering. Compiled and written by the world's leading experts and practioners in food science and food technology, it presents the latest research and development in the discipline. It is easy-to-understand and can be used directly by readers interested in practical and commercial applications. So this book is important for researchers as a reference guide, and it can be used in various disciplines as microbiology, chemistry, biochemistry and engineering. 'Food Biotechnology' also is interesting for the industries, in addition to food processing, because commercial products and services affected include fine chemicals, enzymes, cultures, equipment and supplies.

Editorial Reviews

A professional reference on nucleic acid systems, proteins and enzymes, organic molecules and microorganisms in the context of food biotechnology. It explains how microorganisms (i.e., bacteria, fungi, and yeasts) can be modified by means of molecular genetics or genetic engineering. It also offers appendix listings of genetics and probes, microorganisms, compounds, and enzymes. It features extensive coverage of new developments in food technologies; the current priorities for food technology; and new uses of basic science and technologies in the context of traditional or new foods. Also included are unpublished material from patents and/or public domain research. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
