14 School of Science and Technology, Online Counseling Resource… Food Microbiology  Food microbiology is the study of the microorganisms which inhabit, create or contaminate food.  The focus of Food Microbiology is on the detection and analysis of food borne spoilage microorganisms.  Study of food micro-organisms; how we can identify and culture them, how they live, how some infect and cause disease and how we can make use of their activities. © 2007, YCMOU. All Rights Reserved.14

15 School of Science and Technology, Online Counseling Resource… Importance of Food Microbiology  Food microbiology unites the disciplines of microbiology and food technology, facilitating advances in providing safer food for the world.  Developments in food technologies and consumer demand for foods that are minimally processed, organic, have low levels of additives, or extended shelf- life create challenges to ensuring food safety.  Food microbiologists address these challenges by investigating all aspects of the existence, survival and behavior of microorganisms in order to better understand their impact on the safety and stability of our food system. © 2007, YCMOU. All Rights Reserved.15

16 School of Science and Technology, Online Counseling Resource… Agricultural Microbiology  In this branch the role of microbes in agriculture is studied from the point of view of both harm & usefulness.  The study of Agricultural Microbiology gives the scientific and technological knowledge useful for sustainable plant production and for the transformation of agricultural products.  The increasing request of an environmental friendly agriculture requires new application of beneficial microorganisms, which could work as tools for the conservation of soil fertility in the mainframe of agricultural productive processes. © 2007, YCMOU. All Rights Reserved.16

17 School of Science and Technology, Online Counseling Resource… Utility of Microorganisms  Some microorganisms are used in the preparation of Biofertilizers & Biopesticides.  Some plays important role in elemental cycles such as carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, sulfur, phosphorus etc.  Some establish a symbiotic association with plants.  Some act as decomposers which returns minerals & nutrients to soil.  Agricultural Microbiologists is also concerned with many infectious diseases caused by pathogenic microbes to farm animals. © 2007, YCMOU. All Rights Reserved.17

18 School of Science and Technology, Online Counseling Resource… Geomicrobiology  The field of Geomicrobiology concerns the role of microbe and microbial processes in geological and geochemical processes.  Geomicrobiology is an overview of how microbial life has affected Earth's environment through time.  It shows how the ubiquity of microorganisms, their high chemical reactivity, and their metabolic diversity make them a significant factor controlling the chemical composition of our planet. © 2007, YCMOU. All Rights Reserved.18

19 School of Science and Technology, Online Counseling Resource… Applications in Geomicrobiology  To study microbial diversity, and life in extreme environments, such as hot springs, high saline etc.  Bioenergetics, microbial metabolic capabilities, and major biogeochemical pathways of Fe, As, U, Zn, S, and P.  Chemical reactivity of the cell surface, metal absorption, and the microbial role in bioremediation.  Microbiological mineral formation and fossilization.  The function of microorganisms in mineral dissolution i.e. bioleaching and oxidation, and the industrial and environmental ramifications of these processes. © 2007, YCMOU. All Rights Reserved.19

20 School of Science and Technology, Online Counseling Resource… Exomicrobiology  It deals with the exploration of microbial life in outer space.  Researchers say, microbes living in the brilliant, colored hot springs of Yellowstone National Park use hydrogen, not sulfur, for fuel.  As hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, If there is life elsewhere, it could be that hydrogen is its fuel.  There is a evidence of water on Mars, and we know that on Earth, hydrogen can be produced biogenetically by photosynthesis and fermentation or non-biogenetically by water reacting with iron-bearing rock.  It's possible that non-biogenic processes produce hydrogen on Mars and that some microbial life form could be using that. © 2007, YCMOU.

21 School of Science and Technology, Online Counseling Resource… Biotechnology  Biotechnology is technology based on biology, especially when used in agriculture, food science, and medicine.  Biotechnology has contributed towards the exploitation of biological organisms or biological processes through modern techniques, which could be profitably used in medicine, agriculture, animal husbandry and environmental cloning. © 2007, YCMOU. All Rights Reserved.21

22 School of Science and Technology, Online Counseling Resource… Industrial Biotechnology  Biotechnology has applications in four major industrial areas: Health care, Crop production and agriculture, Non food uses of crops (e.g. biodegradable plastics, vegetable oil, biofuels), and Environmental uses. © 2007, YCMOU. All Rights Reserved.22

23 School of Science and Technology, Online Counseling Resource… Biotechnology Classified as………  Red biotechnology is applied to medical processes. Some examples are the designing of organisms to produce antibiotics, and the engineering of genetic cures through genomic manipulation.  White biotechnology, also known as industrial biotechnology, is biotechnology applied to industrial processes. Designing of an organism to produce a useful chemical. Use of enzymes as industrial catalysts to either produce valuable chemicals or destroy hazardous.  Green biotechnology is biotechnology applied to agricultural processes. Designing of transgenic plants to grow under specific environmental conditions or in the presence (or absence) of certain agricultural chemicals. Engineering of a plant to express a pesticide, thereby eliminating the need for external application of pesticides. Example, Bt corn.  Blue biotechnology has also been used to describe the marine and aquatic applications of biotechnology, but its use is relatively rare. © 2007, YCMOU. All Rights Reserved.23
