Microbiology is a branch deals with application of microorganisms in the field of science for the production of human beneficial products such as medicines, antibiotics, vaccines, enzymes, biotechnological engineered products and also in food technology as fermentation products. It involves the exploitation of microbes for the production of specific product or use. Genetic engineering is one of the approaches that are applied to the basic microbiology and turns up the basic microbiology into applied microbiology. Microbiology’s goal is to achieve a sustainable environment along with human welfare.

Environmental Microbiologists study how microorganisms interact with the environment and each other. They may study the use of microbes to clean up areas contaminated by heavy metals or study how microbes could aid crop growth. Through the patterns of microbes, the nature of different possible environments in which they are situated, the methodologies used to monitor microorganisms and their activities, their effects on human and negative as well as positive aspects could be easily understood by this.

Industrial Microbiology is a branch of biotechnology that applies microbial sciences to create industrial products in mass quantities, often using microbial cell factories. There are multiple ways to manipulate a microorganism in order to increase maximum product yields. Introduction of mutations into an organism may 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.
Microbial evolution refers to the genetically driven changes that occur in microorganisms and that are retained over time. Some microbial changes can be in response to a selective pressure. In contrast to Darwinian evolution, which takes place over millions of years, microbial evolution can occur within hours.
Industrial microbiology applies microbial science to create high value industrial products that are valuable to humans. Microbes used industrial processes have the ability to produce chemical compounds that couldn’t be synthesized in laboratory or it takes great difficulty to be synthesized. Also, some chemical products can be synthesized more efficiently and cheaply by the action of microbial species. Use of microbes also tends to increase the product yield.

Biotechnology is a broad area of biology, involving the use of living systems and organisms to develop or make products. Depending on the tools and applications, it often overlaps with related scientific fields. In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, biotechnology has expanded to include new and diverse sciences, such as genomics, recombinant gene techniques, applied immunology, and development of pharmaceutical therapies and diagnostic tests. The term biotechnology was first used by Karl Ereky in 1919, meaning the production of products from raw materials with the aid of living organisms
Application of scientific and engineering tools and principles to the processing of material by microbial species to create useful products and processes. Microbial species that are being used may be native isolates, genetically modified microbes or laboratory selected mutants. Microbial biotechnology enabled with genomics lead to breakthroughs such as improves vaccines and better disease-diagnostic tools and improves microbial agents.

The use of naturally occurring microbes, effective microbes, GMOs, or deliberately introduced microbes to consume, breakdown and remove environmental pollutants, contaminants and toxins to clean a polluted site is the essence of bioremediation. It’s an eco-friendly approach of acquiring a pollution free environment. Major environmental issues such as oil spills or contaminated groundwater. It could be done in either of the way “insitu” or “exsitu”. This process leads to the stimulation of microbial growth that leads to the utilization of pollutants.

A vaccine is a biological preparation that provides active acquired immunity to a particular infectious disease. A vaccine typically contains a biological preparation from disease-causing microorganism, or since the beginning of the 21st century, made synthetically that resembles it. This preparation is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins, or one of its surface proteins.
The agent stimulates the body's immune system to recognize the agent as a threat and starts producing antibodies against it, so as to further recognize and destroy any of the microorganisms associated with that agent that it may encounter in the future. Vaccines can be prophylactic (to prevent or ameliorate the effects of a future infection by a natural or "wild" pathogen), or therapeutic (to fight a disease that has already occurred, such as cancer.

An Antimicrobial is an agent that kills microorganisms or stops their growth. Antimicrobial medicines can be grouped according to the microorganisms they act primarily against. For example, antibiotics are used against bacteria, and antifungals are used against fungi. They can also be classified according to their function. Agents that kill microbes are microbicides, while those that merely inhibit their growth are called bacteriostatic agents. The use of antimicrobial medicines to treat infection is known as antimicrobial chemotherapy, while the use of antimicrobial medicines to prevent infection is known as antimicrobial prophylaxis

Microbiology is the study of all living organisms that are too small to be visible with the naked eye. This includes bacteria, archaea, viruses, fungi, prions, protozoa and algae, collectively known as 'microbes. The branches of microbiology can be classified into pure and applied sciences. Microbiology can be also classified based on taxonomy, in the cases of bacteriology, mycology, protozoology, and phycology.
There is considerable overlap between the specific branches of microbiology with each other and with other disciplines, and certain aspects of these branches can extend beyond the traditional scope of microbiology. In general the field of microbiology can be divided in the more fundamental branch (pure microbiology) and the applied microbiology (biotechnology). In the more fundamental field the organisms are studied as the subject itself on a deeper (theoretical) level. Applied microbiology refers to the fields where the micro-organisms are applied in certain processes such as brewing or fermentation. The organisms itself are often not studied as such, but applied to sustain certain processes.
