Bacterial Biogeochemistry: The Ecophysiology of Mineral Cycling, Fourth Edition discusses the influence of bacterial activity on the chemical environment of the biosphere. Following the success of previous editions, this update focuses on bacterial metabolism and its relevance to the environment, including the decomposition of soil, food chains, nitrogen fixation, assimilation, and reduction of carbon nitrogen and sulfur, and microbial symbiosis. All chapters have been revised and brought up-to-date in light of the many advances and discoveries that have taken place during the last decade. The scope of the new edition has broadened to provide a review of the processes and phenomena that are relevant for global change feedback loops and advances in bacterial biogeochemical cycles.
Advances in Applied Microbiology, Volume 128 continues the comprehensive reach of this widely read and authoritative review source in microbiology where users will find invaluable references and information on a variety of areas relating to the topics of microbiology.

Endophytic Fungi: The Full Story of the Untapped Treasure covers the developments in endophytic fungal research from beginning to the end by the eminent researchers involved in the field. It sheds light on the endophytic fungal current research, challenges, and future possibilities, the trending recent topics in the plant-fungal endophytes' biodynamics for sustainable development of bioproducts and its applications are supported in large-scale biosynthesis of industrially and pharmaceutical important biomolecules.The highlights of Endophytic Fungi: The Full Story of the Untapped Treasure are the bioprospecting and applied aspects of endophytic fungi. Practical applications of such endophytes are discussed in detail. Further, it reviews recent strategies on alternative sustainable sources of medicines such as secondary metabolites of fungi instead of over collection of plants under prohibiting of biodiversity conventions. The uniqueness of the Endophytic Fungi is the inclusion of updated bioinformatics-based strategies and its importance in bioactive molecules produced by endophytic fungi. Endophytic Fungi addresses one of the most eminent issues in this field: "how to translate the potential that endophytic fungi hold in stable practical application."
Metabolomics for Personalized Vaccinology explores the development of personalized vaccine which requires in-depth knowledge of the patient’s health status, particularly the immune system and on metabolomics, the closest indicator of the disease phenotype. The metabolic pathway of the host's system is altered by vaccine administration. As a result, Metabolomics for Personalized Vaccinology provides understanding of how metabolomics might be employed in personalized vaccinology. Over the last few years, researchers have published articles on personalized vaccine, but these are sparse. Therefore, compiling this information will help the reader to get an overview of the progress of this field, despite its being at its infancy. Metabolomics for Personalized Vaccinology is ideally suited for researchers and postgraduate students who are interested in clinical and non-clinical studies where metabolites are used for identification of disease and therapeutic targets.
Microbial Genomics: Clinical, Pharmaceutical and Industrial Applications focuses on the various applications of microbial genomics in clinical, pharmaceutical, and industrial fields. The book consists of four parts devoted to bacterial, viral, and fungal genomics, as well as their applications in clinical, pharmaceutical, and industrial fields. Chapters are written by experts in their respective disciplines and are tightly organized with an introduction to detailed descriptions, available software implementation, applications, advanced topics, summaries, analytic questions, exercises, and suggested readings. Throughout this book, the latest genomics and biotechnological developments and discoveries as well as open problems and future challenges on microbial genomics are highlighted. Readers will be introduced to state-of-the-art developments and trends of microbial genomics, its clinical, pharmaceutical, and industrial applications.
Unveiling the Proteolytic Networks of Parasites, Volume 125 presents a cutting-edge exploration of specific proteases across a spectrum of parasitic organisms. Top researchers in the field conduct multifaceted examinations, shedding light on the distinct roles of these proteases within significant parasite groups, including malaria, trematodes, nematodes, and blood-feeding arthropods. Chapters in this new release include Bioinformatic analysis of proteases across multiple helminth species: a case study using Wormbase, UniProt and Merops databases, Proteasomes of parasites, Proteases of Trematodes as a promising drug targets-tentative title, Astacins, and metalloproteases in nematodes, and Proteases of bloodfeeding arthropods.
