|Title:||The Microbial Cell Factory||Authors:||Murphy, Cormac D.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/4308||Date:||14-Mar-2012||Abstract:||Microorganisms have been used for decades as sources of antibiotics, vitamins and enzymes and for the production of fermented foods and chemicals. In the 21st century microorganisms will play a vital role in addressing some of the problems faced by mankind. In this article three of the current applications in which microbes have a significant role to play are highlighted: the discovery of new antibiotics, manufacture of biofuels and bioplastics, and production of fine chemicals via biotransformation.||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Royal Society of Chemistry||Copyright (published version):||2012, Royal Society of Chemistry||Keywords:||Antibiotic;Biocatalysis;Biofuels;Bioplastics;Biotransformation||DOI:||10.1039/C2OB06903B||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
