Microbial Biomineralization of Calcium Carbonate
( 1646 reads)
Microbial metabolic process leads to production of inorganic substances as biominerals and precipitation of calcium carbonate as biominerals is called microbially induced calcium carbonate precipitation (MICCP). Ureolytic bacterial strains from various habitats are the most promising choice for the process with several applications starting from healing of surface cracks to study of lithology of outer neighbor planets and other bioengineering aspects.
Probiotics and Health Benefits - A Way to Replace Daily Medicines
( 1643 reads)
This article is an attempt to provide a clear context of making health of human more natural by use of beneficial microorganisms as food supplement known as probiotics and their role in decrease disease incidence which has been a focus in health care industries.
Microbial Lipase - A Wonder Bioproduct
( 3552 reads)
This article focuses on use of microbial lipase in different industries and specific lipases like alkaline and cold active lipases that can be used as a potential bioproduct for sustainable development.
Bioplastics - A Way Towards Sustainability
( 3835 reads)
Over increasing population causing rapid industrialization and more use of petroleum based product which makes our environment unsuitable, less balanced and more toxic. The increasing use of plastics and their accumulation has further contributed to eco-pollution due to its non biodegradability. people now focusing on more reliable and eco friendly use of plastics derived from biological sources.
Sponge Associated Microbes and its Biotechnological Potential
( 2196 reads)
This article focuses on microbes those are symbiotically associated with marine sponges in deep oceans and their novel as well as biotechnological potential. As marine environment is most diverse and well maintained in terms of energy, productivity, homeostasis and eco sustainability, it is important to study the microbial diversity, their beneficial biotechnological potential for sustainability
