The book covers the fundamentals of the field of biocatalysis that are not treated in such detail (or even not at all) in existing biocatalysis books or biochemistry textbooks. It of course does not substitute existing biochemistry textbooks but will serve a suitable supplement as it discusses biochemical fundamentals in connection with the respective topics. With focus on the interdisciplinary nature of biocatalysis, the book contains many aspects of fundamental organic chemistry and some of inorganic chemistry as well, which should make it interesting not only for biochemistry but also for chemistry students. An important theme being emphasized in the book is that applied biocatalysis is one of the main prerequisites for a sustainable development. The topics covered ranges from basic enzyme chemistry (biosynthesis, structure, properties, interaction forces, kinetics) to a detailed description of catalytic mechanisms. It covers the fundamentals of the different enzyme classes together with their applications in native and in immobilized state or in the form of whole cells in aqueous as well as non-conventional media. Topics such as catalytic antibodies, nucleic acid catalysts, non-ribosomal peptide synthesis, evolutionary methods, and the design of cells are also included.

Safety in Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology reviews the hazards involved in work with both naturally occurring and genetically-modified microorganisms. This text is divided into 12 chapters and begins with an overview of the laboratory- and industry-associated infection hazards. The subsequent chapters deal with the legal issues, containment, risk assessment, and pathogenicity testing of infection related to industrial microbiology and biotechnology. These topics are followed by discussions of the safety considerations in recombinant plasmid preparation, the safe handling of industrially-produced mammalian cells, and some genetic designs that can be applied to processes based on recombinant DNA microorganisms. Other chapters explore the design for safety in bioprocessing and the containment in the development and manufacture of recombinant DNA-derived products. The remaining chapters look into the monitoring and validation in biotechnological processes, as well as the occupational health implications of industrial biotechnology. This book will prove useful to biotechnologists, microbiologists, safety engineers, and researchers.

The field of industrial microbiology involves a thorough knowledge of the microbial physiology behind the processes in the large-scale, profit-oriented production of microbe-related goods which are the subject of the field. In recent times a paradigm shift has occurred, and a molecular understanding of the various processes by which plants, animals and microorganisms are manipulated is now central to industrial microbiology. Thus the various applications of industrial microbiology are covered broadly, with emphasis on the physiological and genomic principles behind these applications. Relevance of the new elements such as bioinformatics, genomics, proteomics, site-directed mutation and metabolic engineering, which have necessitated the paradigm shift in industrial microbiology are discussed.
