Book description

Providing a comprehensive resource on the complete field of Clostridium, this book also serves as a compilation of critical reviews on the advantages of using Clostridia for new medical and biotechnological applications. Responding to gaps in the literature, Handbook on Clostridia combines information on basic methods, biochemical fundamentals, clinical practice, industrial applications, and novel developments into a single volume. Experts in the field summarize methods, physiology, medical significance, regulation, ecosystems, genomics, and current and potential applications. It is a valuable reference for every specialist, researcher, and student involved in this promising field.
