Summary

One of the most important organisms in biotechnology, Corynebacterium glutamicum is currently used to produce 2 million tons of amino acids per year for a rapidly expanding market. Until now, research and information have been scattered among individual papers which are often difficult to locate in a timely manner.

As the first complete compilation of major findings, Handbook of Corynebacterium glutamicum is a comprehensive source of scientific and technical information required for the understanding and manipulation of C. glutamicum. The book summarizes the current knowledge in the field ofC. glutamicum research from its discovery in 1957 through the most recent studies at the genomic and systemic level, and provides a basis for future work. Written by experts from industry and academia, chapters cover all major aspects of C. glutamicum, including physiology, biochemistry, genetics, and industrial applications.

Just as C. glutamicum has proven its profitability in industry and research, this book will demonstrate its value to the scientists striving to understand and develop even more efficient producer strains of this promising microorganism.
