This timely and unique volume offers a comprehensive synthesis of biotechnology search and discovery in the post-genomics area. It explores the primacy of natural products for biotechnology, emphasizing the extraordinary resource that microbial diversity presents and how and where that resource, and the exploitable properties it contains, can be found.

Contributors representing a wide range of academic, government, and industrial organizations, disciplines, and countries and who are pre-eminent in their specialist field present state of the science material. Preambles at the beginning of various sections set the scene and provide continuity between the individual chapters.

brings together for the first time the diverse and complex sets of technology, data, knowledge, ideas, and objectives into an integrated and holistic approach to bioprospecting. It demonstrates the need for modern microbiologists to have an integrated perspective of science in order to address the big questions in microbiology and is invaluable reading for instructors and researchers in environmental microbiology, biotechnology, and microbial diversity as well as applied biologists.
