Industrial Microbiology

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.
