Industrial Microbiology

Industrial microbiology is a branch of biotechnology that applies microbial sciences to create industrial products in mass quantities. There are multiple ways to manipulate a microorganism in order to increase maximum product yields. Introduction of mutations into an organism many be accomplished by introducing them to mutagens. The manipulation of organisms in order to yield a specific product has many applications to the real world like the production of some antibiotics, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, solvents, alcohol and daily products. Industrial microbiology can be applied for Medical purposes, Food Industry, Fermentation, Agriculture, Biopesticides, Wastewater management, Metabolic Engineering, Chemical applications, Pharmaceutical: develops novel, small-molecule drugs and medical devices
