About this item

The past decade has witnessed unprecedented growth and development in biotechnology and bioengineering, positioning bio-economy as a major indicator of advancement. Providing extensive coverage of new developments, state-of-the-art technologies and potential future trends, Current Developments in Biotechnology and Bioengineering is a package of nine books that compile the latest ideas from across the entire arena of biotechnology and bioengineering.

This volume, Functional Genomics and Metabolic Engineering,provides data-based scientific knowledge and state-of-art information on functional genomics and metabolic engineering. It covers the cores subjects of functional genomics, such as epigenomics, metagenomics, genomics of extremophiles, genomics studies in nutrient transport, genomics of miRNA and genomics of pathogenesis. An overview of metabolic engineering theories and approaches is supported with specific important examples of secondary metabolites, including Streptomyces, pentose utilization in E. coli, bacterial ethanol fermentation, yeast mediated benzaldehyde biotransformation, carotenoid production, acetic acid production by E. coli and NADH regeneration.

  • Provides state-of-the-art information and applications of functional genomics and metabolic engineering as applied to biotechnology
  • Supports the education and understanding of biotechnology education and R&D
  • Demonstrates new means of enabling cells to produce valuable proteins, polypeptides, and primary and secondary metabolites
