Summary This book offers the latest scientific research on applied microbiology presented at the IV International Conference on Environmental, Industrial and Applied Microbiology (BioMicroWorld2011) held in Spain in 2011. A wide-ranging set of topics including agriculture, environmental, food, industrial and medical microbiology makes this book interesting not only for microbiologists, but also for anyone who likes to keep up with cutting-edge research in microbiology and microbial biotechnology. Readers will find a major collection of knowledge, approaches, methods and discussions on the latest advances and challenges in applied microbiology in a compilation of 136 chapters written by active researchers in the field from around the world. The topics covered in this single volume include biodegradation of pollutants, water, soil and plant microorganisms, biosurfactants, antimicrobial natural products, antimicrobial susceptibility, antimicrobial resistance, human pathogens, food microorganisms, fermentation, biotechnologically relevant enzymes and proteins, microbial physiology, metabolism and gene expression mainly, although many other subjects are also discussed.
