Preface
The field of Basic Research and Biotechnological Applications of Microbes is a fascinating field of science and making a dramatic passage from being seen as a kind of interesting peripheral topic to a mainstream, central tenet of biology. The fact that the National Science Foundation in the United States provided important support for the workshop and that many participants here have received NSF and counterpart government support is a testament to the reality of this symbiosis emergence. How symbiosis impacts the formation of the very biomes within which we live and contributes heavily to the biodiversity of the planet appears fundamental in profound ways. This volume contains fifteen chapters authored by internationally recognized subject specialists. An overall view of the basics of biotechnology, with reference to diverse microorganisms, is discussed in the first chapter. This is followed by microbial diversity in chapters two and three. Recent taxonomic status of Glomalean fungi is enumerated. Tailoring of microbes into allies is covered in chapter four. Molecular basis of plant-microbe interaction is highlighted in chapter five. Description of phosphorus metabolism and the concerned enzymes are given in chapter six. Biotechnological applications of prokaryotes and eukaryotes are illustrated in chapters seven to eleven. Three chapters are devoted exclusively to bioremediation by friendly fungi. Last chapter is devoted to modern techniques. In addition to thanking the authors, without whose selfless efforts press could not bring forth this volume, I would like to offer particular appreciation to Dr. Ashok K Chauhan, Founder President, Amity, New Delhi, who lent his utmost support in this endeavor. I acknowledge the following individuals who served in an ad hoc capacity in correcting and formatting the chapters Ms. Rina Kumari, Ms. Pham Huang Giang, Mr. Ram Prasad and Mr. Anil Chandra. We hope the volume provides useful
LEEE Preface compilation of the most authentic and updated collection of data to post graduate students, active researchers, teachers and professionals.
