Development of active logarithmic microbial culture that is suitable for the final industrial production level is known as inoculum development. Inoculum we use for industrial fermentations should be in its active, healthy and exponential growth phase, it should be available free of contamination in required large volumes, it should retain its capability of formation of desired product formation. The process is a stepwise and gradual increase in scaling-up the volume of inoculum to the desired level, which includes preparation of bacterial suspension (either vegetative cells or spores) in sterile tap water and then to the broth or in case of fungi, their hyphae are transferred to the broth.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
