Nowadays, biochemical detection and quantification methods are necessary to study many aspects of food sciences, agricultural, and applied environmental microbiology.
These areas are diverse in scope, with a focus on understanding the functional interactions between microorganisms and their environment, at levels ranging from molecules to biomes.
Setting up and improving new biochemical tools in order to study these major research areas will significantly contribute to the progress of genetics and molecular biology, enzymology and protein engineering, biotechnology, public health microbiology, environmental, and genomic microbiology, among others.
The aim of this publication is to provide up-to-date information about the recent developments in biochemical methodologies and strategies for microbial isolation and identification in the environment, general concerns about and health benefits of natural products, food preservation and safety, as well as genetically modified crops in agriculture.
I hope this book will be a compendium of ideas which many people will use in the field of agricultural, environmental, and food science.
