This third edition text now comprises 17 chapters, of which four are new--on functional genomics, solid-state fermentations, applications of metabolomics to microbial cell factories, and current trends in culturing complex plant tissues for the production of metabolites and elite genotypes. Among the other topics: microbial and plant cell synthesis of secondary metabolites and strain improvement, flux control analysis and stoichiometric network modeling, and enzyme and cofactor engineering in the pharmaceutical and fermentation industries. The roster of contributors is truly international. Six editors (based in six countries) combined forces to bring together this text/reference in a burgeoning field.
