About this book

This volume collects new information on the genomics of saprophytic soil Pseudomonas, as well as functions related to genomic islands. Pseudomonas are ubiquitous inhabitants and this volume explores life styles in different settings and sheds further insights on the wide metabolic potential of this microbe for the removal of pollutants and production of added-value products. This volume also explores how Pseudomonas responds and reacts to environmental signals, including detection of cell density. This fifth volume covers: genomics, physiology and metabolism, databases, gene regulation, pathogenesis, and catabolism and biotransformations.
