Book Description :

Exponentially increasing information on biological organisms coupled with increasing computational power in the past decade have broadened the perspective of fundamental biological research, bringing about considerable promise and unprecedented potential for practical applications in biotechnology. As one emergent discipline, synthetic biology aims to design and engineer novel biologically-based parts, devices, and systems, in addition to redesigning existing, natural biological systems. Although previously relegated to demonstration studies, more recent research in synthetic biology has focused on the rational engineering of industrial microorganisms with the potential to address many of society’s critical challenges. Within the realm of industrial microbiology, progress in the field of synthetic biology has enabled the development of, for example, new biosynthetic pathways for the production of renewable fuels and chemicals, programmable logic controls to regulate and optimize cell function, and robust microbes for the destruction of harmful environmental contaminants. Some of the exciting examples included producing anti-malarial drug, anti- cancer taxol precursor and various biofuel molecules in E. coli and yeast. In addition, these researches have also greatly enhanced our understanding of the cellular machinery and its regulation in some of the industry important microbes, laying an important foundation for further design and engineering of biological function for even greater application. For these reasons, we present here a collection of articles from the leading edge of the field of synthetic biology, with a specific focus on the development in industrial microorganisms. It is the intent of this collection to reach a wide audience whose interests and expertise spans from development of novel synthetic biology methodologies and theories (both experimental and computational) to practical applications seeking to address issues facing the world today.

Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering is an important reference tool for students, teachers, physicians, science and technical writers, and anyone looking for a concise source of current information on this fast-breaking field. Biotechnology is the study of science which have discussed over many years but on the other hand, Genetic Engineering is the premature and young branch of science which has many milestones to achieve. Biotechnology deals with a set of biological techniques developed through basic research and now applied to research and product development. It is the means or way of manipulating life forms (organisms) to provide desirable products for man's use. For example, beekeeping and cattle breeding could be considered to be biotechnology related endeavors. Basically, Genetic Engineering is the modern modification and subspecialty of the branch of science called biotechnology. It deals and concerned with the specific and targeted modifications of the genetic material of bacteria and plants to stimulate them synthesize or biosynthesize desired products, Genetic Engineering is helping a lot to attain the results which are so much beneficial and helpful to the mankind, either it implies the genetic engineering of plants or animals or to microbes to help and improve the quality and quantity of food sometimes. Production associated with food items as well as drugs continues to be the principle exercise carried out by means of genetic engineering. This book covers all of the fundamental principles of the modern topics and has been presented in a very simple manner for self-study and provides comprehensive coverage of the standard topics.

Book Description :

As the world struggles to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels and curb greenhouse gas emissions, industrial biotechnology is also ‘going green.’ Escherichia coli has long been used as a model Gram-negative bacterium, not only for fundamental research, but also for industrial applications. Recently, however, cyanobacteria have emerged as candidate chassis for the production of commodity fuels and chemicals, utilizing CO2 and sunlight as the main nutrient requirements. In addition to their potential for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and lowering production costs, cyanobacteria have naturally efficient pathways for the production metabolites such as carotenoids, which are of importance in the nutraceutical industry. The unique metabolic and regulatory pathways present in cyanobacteria present new challenges for metabolic engineers and synthetic biologists. Moreover, their requirement for light and the dynamic regulatory mechanisms of the diurnal cycle further complicate the development and application of cyanobacteria for industrial applications. Consequently, significant advancements in cyanobacterial engineering and strain development are necessary for the development of a ‘green E. coli’. This Research Topic will focus on cyanobacteria as organisms of emerging industrial relevance, including research focused on the development of genetic tools for cyanobacteria, the investigation of new cyanobacterial strains, the construction of novel cyanobacterial strains via genetic engineering, the application of ‘omics’ tools to advance the understanding of engineered cyanobacteria, and the development of computational models for cyanobacterial strain development.
