Microorganisms by Yiu H. Hui

Food Biotechnology: Microorganisms is the only book that compiles comprehensive information on: nucleic acid systems, proteins and enzymes, organic molecules and microorganisms in the context of food biotechnology. It will revolutionize the practice of food biotechnology by explaining how microorganisms (i.e., bacteria, fungi, yeasts) can be modified by means of molecular genetics or genetic engineering. This volume offers appendix listings of genetics and probes, microorganisms, compounds and enzymes. This reference is unlike any other work because of its extensive coverage of: new developments in food technologies, current priorities, 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 Also included are unpublished material from patents and/or public domain research.
