Advances and Applications Through Fungal Nanobiotechnology by Ram Prasad

By Ram Prasad

​​Fungal nanobiotechnology has emerged as one of many key applied sciences, and an green, as a resource of meals and harnessed to ferment and protect meals and drinks, in addition to purposes in human health and wellbeing (antibiotics, anti-cholesterol statins, and immunosuppressive agents), whereas has used fungi for large-scale creation of enzymes, acids, biosurfactants, and to regulate fungal affliction in plants and pest keep watch over. With the harnessing of nanotechnology, fungi have grown more and more vital via delivering a greener replacement to chemically synthesized nanoparticles.

The third domain: the untold story of archaea and the future of biotechnology

"The 3rd area" is the untold tale of ways the invention of a brand new type of existence - first ridiculed, then missed for the earlier thirty years via mainstream scientists - is revolutionizing technology, undefined, or even our look for extraterrestrial lifestyles. class is a major factor for technological know-how: in case you have no idea what you are looking at, how will you interpret what you notice?

Essential Microbiology

Crucial Microbiology second version is a completely revised entire introductory textual content aimed toward scholars taking a primary direction within the subject.  It offers a terrific access into the area of microorganisms, contemplating all points in their biology (structure, metabolism, genetics), and illustrates the awesome range of microbial existence through devoting a bankruptcy to every of the most taxonomic groupings.

Hygiene in food processing: Principles and practice

The hygienic processing of nutrition issues either the aptitude dangers within the meals items and the legislation, layout and administration of nutrients processing amenities. This moment variation of Hygiene in nutrients processing offers a revised assessment of the practices for secure processing. half one addresses the dangers of microbial meals and the corresponding law within the european.

Potential of fungal-mediated biosynthesis of silver nanoparticles may be important for the development of effective antibacterial agents showing resistance to drugs available in the market. Another Aspergillus strain, A. fumigatus, was also used for extracellular biosynthesis of silver nanoparticles, synthesis process of which was quite fast and silver nanoparticles formed within minutes of silver ion coming in contact with the cell filtrate. TEM micrograph showed formation of well-dispersed silver nanoparticles in the range of 5–25 nm (Bhainsa and D’souza 2006).

2014; Prasad et al. 2015). Also, many of the proteins that secreted by fungi can transform metal ions rapidly with non-hazardous processes. Therefore, there is an increasing interest in using fungi for these processes, and they may have a significant potential to provide a quick and safe process for production of metallic nanoparticles (Rai et al. 2009). , isolated from the leaves of turmeric (Curcuma longa) was studied for producing silver nanoparticles and this successful study was used as a weapon against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli in a facial way (Singh et al.
