Summary

This title includes a number of Open Access chapters.

Microbiology is the study of microorganisms (or microbes), which include bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, and even prions. In short, microbiology refers to the study of life and organisms that are too small to be seen with the naked eye. Microorganisms are found in almost every habitat present in nature and are vital to humans and the environment. While some microbes are harmful, causing diseases that harm and kill people, animals, and plants, they are exploited by researchers. They have uses in food, water treatment, science and medicine, energy, warfare, and much more. This new book presents a collection of new research and studies covering advances in microbiology dealing with medicine, agriculture, and more.
