Microorganisms are ubiquitous in nature, these small living variables occur almost everywhere including extreme environmental conditions and exhibits their metabolic activities in aerobic and anaerobic environment as well. Though the microorganisms are very divert in their morphological, biochemical, genetical and physiological characteristics, there are certain inherent and unique properties, which make them of peculiar interest. Considering these properties, microorganisms can be used in the agriculture as well as in industries for production. The aims and objectives of the present series is to disseminate the best available information about the genetical, biochemical, immunological and agriculture related properties of the microorganisms and their possible exploitation in the production of food, vaccines, fermented product, antibiotics, disease resistance crops and other similar areas in the most efficient and economic manner.
