Bacteria

  • Biotechnology of Lactic Acid Bacteriaby Fernanda Mozzi; Rául R. Raya; Graciela M. Vignolo

    Wiley 2015; US$ 214.50

    Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) have historically been used as starter cultures for the production of fermented foods, especially dairy products. Over recent years, new areas have had a strong impact on LAB studies: the application of �omics� tools; the study of complex microbial ecosystems, the discovery of new LAB species, and the use of LAB as powerhouses... more...

  • Microbial-based Polyhydroxyalkanoatesby Amirul Al-Ashraf Abdullah; Kai-Hee Huong; Hema Ramachandran; Shantini Kannusamy

    Smithers Rapra 2015; US$ 130.00

    Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) is a group of natural biopolymers synthesised by a wide variety of microbial genera. It is a biodegradable and biocompatible thermoplastic consisting of a repeated chain of various hydroxyalkanoate monomers. PHA is envisioned to be one of the most prospective and futuristic materials which is beneficial to mankind and to... more...

  • Synthetic and Biophysical Studies on the Tridachiahydropyrone Family of Natural Productsby Kimberley Jade Powell

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This thesis addresses fundamental scientific questions such as: How are complex natural products synthesized in vivo? Can we replicate these conditions in a laboratory environment? What is the biological function of such secondary metabolites? What are the biological origins of chirality? These issues are explored in an accessible manner using a multidisciplinary... more...

  • Ultrafast Dynamics of Phospholipid-Water Interfacesby René Costard

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This thesis presents a highly innovative study of the ultrafast structural and vibrational dynamics of hydrated phospholipids, the basic constituents of cell membranes. As a novel approach to the water-phospholipid interface, the author studies phosphate vibrations using the most advanced methods of nonlinear vibrational spectroscopy, including femtosecond... more...

  • Bottom-Up Self-Organization in Supramolecular Soft Matterby Stefan C. Müller; Jürgen Parisi

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This book presents the general concepts of self-organized spatio-temporal ordering processes. These concepts are demonstrated via prototypical examples of recent advances in materials science. Particular emphasis is on nano scale soft matter in physics, chemistry, biology and biomedicine. The questions addressed embrace a broad spectrum of complex... more...

    This volume of Advances in Microbial Physiology  continues the long tradition of topical and important reviews in microbiology Key features: Contributions from leading authorities Informs and updates on all the latest developments in the field more...

  • Biological Nitrogen Fixation, 2 Volume Setby Frans J. de Bruijn

    Wiley 2015; US$ 449.95

    Nitrogen is arguably the most important nutrient required by plants. However, the availability of nitrogen is limited in many soils and although the earth's atmosphere consists of 78.1% nitrogen gas (N2) plants are unable to use this form of nitrogen. To compensate , modern agriculture has been highly reliant on industrial nitrogen fertilizers to... more...

  • Bacteria-Metal Interactionsby Daad Saffarini

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 99.00

    This book provides a detailed description and analysis of the reduction and metabolism of metals and metalloids by sulfate reducing bacteria. The molecular mechanisms of bacterial resistance to copper are examined as well as extracellular electron transfer and bacterial metal oxide respiration. Furthermore, in this book enrichment, isolation, and... more...

  • Handbook for Azospirillumby Fabricio Dario Cassán; Yaacov Okon; Cecilia M. Creus

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 199.00

    The functional analysis of plant-microbe interactions has re-emerged in the past 10 years due to spectacular advances in integrative study models. This book summarizes basic and technical information related to the plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) belonging to the genus Azospirillum, considered to be one of the most representative PGPR last... more...

  • Bio-Nanoparticlesby Om V. Singh

    Wiley 2015; US$ 149.95

    Nanoparticles are the building blocks for nanotechnology; they are better built, long lasting, cleaner, safer, and smarter products for use across industries, including communications, medicine, transportation, agriculture and other industries. Controlled size, shape, composition, crystallinity, and structure-dependent properties govern the unique... more...
