Microbiology and biotechnology are rapidly growing and highly dynamic field of study and hot field of research. Microorganisms are living organisms like plants and animals but because of their minute size and omnipresence, performing experiments with microbes requires special techniques and equipment apart from good theoretical knowledge about them. This clearly written, easy-to-use, updated and expanded fifth edition provides knowledge about all the five i.e., technique, equipment, principles involved, precautions and expected results. This laboratory manual provides a wide spectrum of 191 exercises covering all aspects of bacteria, fungi, algae, viruses, in addition to genetics, plant pathology, plant tissue culture and mushroom production technology. The exercises are presented in a simple language with explanatory diagrams. Twelve appendices at the end of the manual provide a reference to the sources for obtaining cultures of microbes, preparation of various stains, reagents, buffers and media in the laboratory, and classification of prokaryotes as per the Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology , second edition, published in 5 Volumes in 2001 to 2012. With the inclusion of many more easy-to-follow figures and new exercises, this edition of the manual will serve as a useful tool not only for the UG and PG students, researchers and teachers of Microbiology, Biotechnology, Agriculture, Horticulture, Forestry, Environmental Science, Food and Nutrition, Botany, Plant Pathology, Pharmacy, BTech. and MTech., but also for industrialists and professionals related to dairy, beverages, food processing, diagnostics, and mushroom producing units at small and large scale.
