Industrial & Agricultural Microbiology

This branch of Biotechnology that applies microbial sciences and industries together. It uses microorganisms to produce a desired product in mass quantities in order to make a profit out of it. There are multiple ways to manipulate a microorganism in order to increase maximum yield of product. Introduction of mutations into an organism many be accomplished by introducing them to mutagens. Another way to increase production is by gene amplification, this is done by the use of plasmids, and vectors. The plasmids and/ or vectors are used to incorporate multiple copies of a specific gene that would allow more enzymes to be produced that eventually cause more product yield. The manipulation of organisms in order to yield a specific product has many applications to the real world like the production of some antibiotics, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, solvents, alcohol and daily products. They can also be used in an agricultural application and use them as a bio pesticide instead of using dangerous chemicals or as inoculants and help plant proliferation.
