With information on the molecular biological and genomic aspects of fungal degradation of plant cell walls to the industrial production and application of key fungal enzymes, chapters in the book cover topics such as enzymology of cellulose, hemicelluloses, and lignin degradation. Edited by a leading researcher in the field, Fungi and Lignocellulosic Biomass will be a valuable tool in advancing the development and production of biofuels and a comprehensive resource for fungal biologists, enzymologists, protein chemists, biofuels chemical engineers, and other research and industry professionals in the field of biomass research.
Applications of Microbial Engineering provides a better understanding of industrially important genetically manipulated and engineered prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell systems. The content of this book are based on most recent developments in microbial engineering. The contributions by specialists on the respective topics provide a profound scientific basis for further research. It is expected that this book will be a valuable resource for researchers as well as students dealing with microbiology and biotechnology.
