Abstract

Industrial microbiology has served humanity since prebiblical times, providing fermented beverages and foods to enhance the quality of life. The antibiotic era featured an explosion in the number of microbial products for medicine, nutrition, industry, and research. Revolutionary developments in molecular genetics are propelling the field into a new growth phase with promise of solutions to major world problems.
