Item description for Bacterial Spore Formers: Probiotics and Emerging Applications by E. Ricca...

Horizon Scientific Press titles focus on high-level microbiology and molecular biology topics. Written by internationally renowned and highly respected leaders in the field, they comprise of review manuals, practical manuals, and reference texts for research scientists, bioscience professionals and graduate students.

Bacterial spore farmers have been the focus of intense study over the last forty years centered primarily on Bacillus subtilis. This organism has served as an excellent model for differentiation in a single cell and has provided unique insights into the mechanisms that control cellular differentiation. Spore-farming bacteria are becoming increasingly important in the areas of probiotics, vaccine technology and biotechnology.

This comprehensive book describes in detail the most topical emerging areas of scientific importance involving the use of spores and covers their use as probiotics in humans and animals and with plants. In addition, authors present the emerging use of the spore as a tool for nanobiotechnology where the spore can be used for the efficient display of heterologous proteins on the spore surface. The use of this technology in vaccine design is discussed. Also covered are the ecological roles of spores, the taxonomy and systematics of spore forming bacteria, and the architecture and assembly of spores.

The innovative topics covered in this volume will be of particular interest to scientists working in all areas of probiotic research and vaccine technology. The book is recommended reading for microbiologists involved with Bacillus spp. and other spore forming bacteria.
