Best Books for Industrial and Food Microbiology
Crueger’s Biotechnology: A textbook of Industrial Microbiology
by Wulf Crueger (Author), Anneliese Crueger (Author), K.R. Aneja (Author)
This edition provides various aspects of biotechnology and microbiology written in a simple and lucid style to help the reader grasp the information quickly and easily. The book contains 22 chapters and each chapter presents updated material sufficient to meet the students expectations from a basic textbook. Chapters 14, 16, 18, and 20 have been updated including some new additional material. Two new chapters, 21 and 22, have been added that deal with the microbial pesticides and biofertilisers, respectively. All the previous chapters have been revised and updated. An updated index has been included to give more importance to the book. This edition of the book will prove to be very useful reading material for all students, teachers, professionals, researchers, industrialists, scientists involved in chemical engineering, biochemical engineering, environmental science, microbiology, biotechnology and life science. All the tables and figures have been newly redrawn to give full clarity to and good understanding of the topics. Most importantly, this book has been printed in two colours, it will give more impact to the students. The book also caters to the requirement of the syllabus prescribed by various Indian universities for undergraduates and postgraduates who are pursuing these courses.
Industrial Microbiology, Second Edition, provides the reader with grounding in both the fundamental principles of microbial physiology and various traditional and modern applications of micro-organisms to industrial processes, Most of these have been made possible (or enhanced) by recent developments in genetic engineering.
The book discusses key aspects of microbial physiology, exploring the versatility of micro-organisms, their diverse metabolic activities and products. lt divulges the role of industrial micro-organisms, and the technology required, in large-scale cultivation and isolation of
foods, beverages, chemical feed stocks, fuels, biof-fertilizers and pharmaceuticals.
Microbiology an Introduction 9th edition Pearson International Edition 9th edition
by Christine L. Case Gerard J. Tortora, Berdell R. Funke (Author)
With this Ninth Edition, the “Number One” best-selling non-majors microbiology text extends its trusted and reliable approach with improved disease chapters that feature efficient new “Disease in Focus” boxes, a thoroughly revised immunity chapter (17), new options for the Microbiology Place website/CD-Rom, and a new Media Manager instructor presentation package with 30 multi-step animations.
Prescott’s Microbiology 9th Edition
by Joanne Willey (Author), Linda Sherwood (Author), Christopher J. Woolverton (Author)
The author team of Prescott’s Microbiology continues the tradition of past editions by providing a balanced, comprehensive introduction to all major areas of microbiology. This balance makes Microbiology appropriate for microbiology majors and mixed majors courses. The authors have introduced a number of pedagogical elements designed to facilitate student learning. They also remain focused on readability, artwork, and the integration of several key themes (including evolution, ecology and diversity) throughout the text, making an already superior text even better.
Principles of Fermentation Technology
by Peter F Stanbury (Author), Allan Whitaker (Author), Stephen J. Hall (Author)
The successful structure of the previous edition of Principles of Fermentation Technology has been retained in this third edition, which covers the key component parts of a fermentation process including growth kinetics, strain isolation and improvement, inocula development, fermentation media, fermenter design and operation, product recovery, and the environmental impact of processes. This accurate and accessible third edition recognizes the increased importance of animal cell culture, the impact of the post-genomics era on applied science and the huge contribution that heterologous protein production now makes to the success of the pharmaceutical industry.
This title is ideally suited for both newcomers to the industry and established workers as it provides essential and fundamental information on fermentation in a methodical, logical fashion. Stanbury, Whitaker and Hall have integrated the biological and engineering aspects of fermentation to make the content accessible to members of both disciplines with a focus on the practical application of theory. This text collates all the fermentation fundamentals into one concise reference, making it a valuable resource for fermentation scientists, as well as those studying in the field.
Food Microbiology 2nd Edition
by M.R. Adams (Author), M.O. Moss (Author)
This widely acclaimed text covers the whole field of modern food microbiology. Now in its second edition, it has been revised and updated throughout and includes new sections on stress response, Mycobacterium spp., risk analysis and new foodborne health problems such as BSE. Food Microbiology covers the three main aspects of interaction between micro-organisms and food – spoilage, foodborne illness and fermentation – and the positive and negative features that result. It discusses the factors affecting the presence of micro-organisms in food and their capacity to survive and grow. Also included are recent developments in procedures used to assay and control the microbiological quality of food. Food Microbiology presents a thorough and accessible account of this increasingly topical subject, and is an ideal text for undergraduate courses in the biological sciences, biotechnology and food science. It will also be valuable as a reference for lecturers and researchers in these areas.
This updated and revised text contains information on foodborne illnesses, such as listeriosis and an expanded section on campylobacter jejuni. Another feature is the inclusion of flow sheets for food processes. The production of diary products and beer, for example, are depicted with flow diagrams. This book should be of interest to food technologists; quality assurance personnel; microbiologists; both undergraduate and graduate students on food microbiology courses; university libraries.

This is the first book on eczema written primarily for the practising dermatologist and gives therapeutic intervention in a tabular form for easy reference. Wherever possible therapeutic intervention are listed as first, second line and third line options. The book also covers contact dermatitis in detail with a special chapter on regional differential diagnosis of contact dermatitis. The contributors are largely those who have worked in this field extensively. The book has more than 140 images with a special focus on novel drugs for atopic dermatitis.
