Abstract

Actinobacteria: Diversity and Biotechnological Applications: New and Future Developments in Microbial Biotechnology and Bioengineering, a volume in the series New and Future Developments in Microbial Biotechnology and Bioengineering series, offers the latest on the biotechnology of Kingdom actinobacteria, covering unique niches like their endosphere, rhizospheric soil and contaminated sites, etc. The book also covers the bioactive secondary metabolites obtained from actinobacteria and describes the application of microorganism (Actinobacteria) in plant growth promotion and in environmental cleanup. Finally, the book describes the biocontrol aspects of actinobacteria and how they can control fungal phytopathogens and the production of secondary metabolites. Includes an overview of all types of actinobacteria, source and enzymatic activity Lists various bioengineering methods for the production of these enzymes Reviews numerous industrial applications of actinobacteria, i.e., crop improvement, removal of heavy metals, etc. Offers unique coverage of the application of actinobacteria in bioremediation processes Explores the plant growth promoting potential of endophytic actinobacteria Describes biosynthetic potential genes associated with actinobacterial genome.
