Molecular Genetics and Microbial Fermentations

  • David A. Jackson
Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series


The interaction of the field of molecular genetics, especially the part of it termed recombinant DNA technology, with the business of large-scale microbial fermentations is a subject much in the news these days. From the reaction of Wall Street to the recent and prospective public offerings of genetic engineering companies, one would think these companies were in the business of synthesizing the Philosopher’s Stone rather than developing methods for getting very large vats of smelly microorganisms to produce bio-chemicals more effectively.
