Microbiology is an important branch of life sciences that has grown exponentially since the establishment of genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics, which have made it possible to unravel the biogeochemical processes that microorganisms facilitate, as well as their interactions with macroorganisms in both health and disease. Microorganisms that were, in the past, considered villains now play very important and beneficial roles in a wide variety of settings, including environmental, food, agricultural, veterinary, systematics, bioremediation, industrial, medical, and pharmaceutical—leading to the emergence of the term “applied microbiology”. Also, microbiology has evolved through the discovery of new species, the selection and improvement of known strains, and the introduction of non-native genes for acquiring new expression products or functional traits. The market analysis corroborates the importance of this branch of life sciences; indeed, applied microbiology was valued at around 24.3 billion USD in 2017, and is expected to exceed USD 675.2 billion by 2024.
This Special Issue, entitled “Recent Advances in Applied Microbiology”, calls for reviews as well as original research articles documenting the progress and current understanding of different aspects of the vast field of applied microbiology.
