Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology
This electronic version of the print journal of the same name is
published on the world wide web by Springer Berlin Heidelberg and focuses
on the following subject areas:
--Biotechnology - with reference of culturing of prokaryotic or eukaryotic
cells, application of enzymes, biotransformations, corrosion of materials,
biodeterioration, biodegradation, and biosensors.
--Biochemical engineering - all biotechnological processes using
microorganisms or enzymes, applying immobilization techniques, new
bioreactors and their characterization and kinetics of microbial
processes. Papers reporting only purification or characterization of
enzymes of biotechnological interest will be restricted to hitherto not
described enzymes and to enzymes which are significantly different to
already known enzymes.
--Applied genetics and regulation - all aspects of research and development
relating to biotechnology, biotechnological aspects of genetic control and
development of microbial strains by classical and molecular techniques,
strain improvement, cell fusion and recombinant DNA technology.
--Applied microbial and cell physiology - all fields of applied microbiology
with respect to biotechnology, excluding medical microbiology. Included
are production of primary and secondary metabolites, transformations by
microorganisms, microbial energy production, conversion of substrates,
degradation of substances and control of microbial processes.
--Environmental biotechnology - covering microorganisms and their physiology
in processes, such as sewage purification and/or treatment of sludges,
wastes and refuses, and the technology of processes in relation to the
organisms involved. Biotechnological soil decontamination, degradation of
xenobiotics and other problematic substances, bioremediation, and
biotechnological gas purification.
--Minireviews - Short reviews describing biotechnological products, or the
current state of relevant processes for the biotechnological production or
degradation of compounds, or bioreactors and other equipment used for
Articles are available as full-text to subscribers in Adobe Acrobat
portable document format (PDF files).
