Microorganisms live in a world of chemical signals. They use small molecular weight compounds (<2,500 amu), known as metabolites, to regulate their own growth and development, to encourage other organisms beneficial to them and suppress organisms that are harmful. To control competitors, microbes produce antibiotics, such as penicillin, streptomycin and erythromycin, antifungals, such as nystatin, amphotericin and cycloheximide, antiprotozoan metabolites including monensin, salinomycin and trichostatins and herbicides like herbicidin and bialophos. To reduce predation by larger organisms they produce nematocides, such as the avermectins and paraherquamide, and insecticides such as the milbemycins, piericidins and spinosads. To encourage plants and animals they produce growth stimulants and metabolites that inhibit pathogens. Many microbial metabolites are exquisitely selective, others are broadly active against many species. Organisms resilient or resistant to the effects of metabolites thrive; sensitive organisms falter. Microbes use metabolites to regulate the environment in which they live and from this platform they control the function and shape of much of the world’s biodiversity. Microbial metabolites represent an incredibly diverse array of chemistry. Microbes can make molecules that synthetic chemists cannot access. While over 25,000 microbial metabolites have been reported in the scientific literature, fewer than 2% of these have ever been readily available to the wider research community. Most metabolites have only ever existed in small quantities in the research laboratory in which they were discovered and their biological activity has never been fully investigated.
OMICS International is organizing 2nd World Congress on Beneficial Microbes: Food, Pharma, Aqua & Beverages Industry on September, 23-25, 2015 Phoenix, USA . The theme of the conference is “Exploiting the power of Microbes for the Industrial Development”. This congress is expecting audience such as experts from food microbiology, aquaculture microbiology, probiotics, and experts from academics as well as industrial microbiology.
The microbiology industry totaled nearly $7.7 billion in 2012. This total is expected to grow from $8.5 billion in 2013 to $11.4 billion in 2018, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.1% for the five-year period, 2013 to 2018.
OMICS International organises 1000+ Conferences every year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific Societies and Publishes 700+ Open Access Journals which contains over 50000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members.

Microbial metabolism is the means by which a microbe obtains the energy and nutrients (e.g. carbon) it needs to live and reproduce. Microbes use many different types of metabolic strategies and species can often be differentiated from each other based on metabolic characteristics.

- Organic synthesis
- Screening of antimicrobial peptides
