To the uninitiated, the genus Clostridium is probably going extra to be linked to sickness than biotechnology. during this quantity, we've got sought to treatment this false impression via compiling aseries of chapters which, jointly, offer a practically-oriented guide of the biotechnologie power of the genus. Clostridium is a extensive grouping of organisms that jointly adopt a myriad of biocatalytic reactions. within the first chapters, the reader is brought to this range, either taxonomically and physiologically. within the following bankruptcy, the present kingdom of genetic research of individuals of the genus is reviewed. the remainder chapters be aware of particular, make the most capable points of person Clostridium species-highlighting their diversity of distinct services (of strength or famous commercial value), particu larly within the components of biotransformation, enzymology, and the construction of chemical fuels. Fittingly, the ultimate bankruptcy demonstrates that even the main poisonous of the clostridia should be of healing worth. The individuals to this quantity replicate the trans nationwide curiosity in Clostridium, and we're indebted to every of them for making this quantity attainable. We fairly desire to recognize the contributions, either to this quantity and to microbiology quite often, of Dr. Elizabeth Cato, who, unfortunately, died almost immediately be fore booklet ofthis quantity. ultimately, we wish to hitch the authors in recommending nearer and wider attention of the attributes and functions of this genus.
