About this book

Extremophiles are increasingly studied for their utility in clinical biotechnology, drug development, and environmental biotechnology. The first book to focus on the biotechnological implications of these microorganisms, Extremophiles introduces researchers to advances in the field, along with production techniques and tools and criteria for data interpretation of extremolytes and extremozymes. The emphasis throughout is on therapeutic challenges and implications of various extremolytes, including the impact of FDA regulations on new products going forward. Potential commercial applications are also explored.
