Microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi have been used for a long time in the chemical, nutrition and pharmaceutical industry. They serve as sources for enzymes, biopolymers, vitamins, antibiotics and other compounds of commercial relevance. The intensive screening of bacteria and fungi for decades resulted in the situation that most of the newly identified active leads proved to be rediscoveries of already described compounds. Thus, the future development of biotechnology must be based on… CONTINUE READING
