Microbial biotechnology, as a pioneering knowledge of producing goods and services from microorganisms and their parts or products, has paved a long way of history. From the very early production of cheese and beverage without the knowledge of its bio-based mechanism in the onset of civilization in fertile crescent (about 10,000 years ago) and later the classical microbial fermentation technology in Europe (19th century) where microorganisms where consciously implemented, to the revolutionary introduction of recombinant DNA technology in the United States of America (20th century), microbial biotechnology has shown its great potential in different sections. Accordingly, this chapter tries to comprehensively summarize the current major issues and trends in the field of actinobacterial biotechnology and their potential roles in biotechnological potencies and productions to give an appropriate overview of their applied potentials.
