Environmental biotechnology : reducing risks from environmental chemicals through biotechnology by Gilbert S Omenn( Book )

9 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gilbert S. Omenn Dean, School of Public Health and Community Medicine University of Washington Seattle, Washington 98195 On behalf of the University of Washington, the City of Seattle, the Steering Committee, and the sponsoring agencies, corporations, and organ izations, I welcome you. \Ve all expect this Conference to stimulate further what is becoming an important application of biotechnology in an area in which our society experiences considerable frustration and gloom: the management of hazardous wastes. It is an all-too-frequent refrain that technology has its benefits and its risks. To many--in the lay pUblic, at least--the damaging notion has taken hold that we are capable of creating problems but are less capable of finding solutions. Chemical streams from industry, agriculture, municipal operations, and household operations have contaminated groundwater, drinking water, and soils, and have undermined the productivity of agri culture and the quality of life. In the meantime, however, we have im proved our quality of life in immeasurable ways through some related developments. The challenge is to continue the enhancements while modifying or preventing the damage

Microbial diversity in time and space by Rita R Colwell( )

15 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The symposium, "Microbial Diversity in Time and Space," was held in the Sanjo Conference Hall, University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan, October 24-26, 1994. The symposium was organized under the auspices of the Japanese Society of Microbial Ecology and co-sponsored by the International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS), International Union of Microbiological Societies (IUMS), International Committee on Microbial Ecology (ICOME), and the Japanese Society of Ecology. The aim of the symposium was to stress the importance of the global role of microorganisms in developing and maintaining biodiversity. Twenty-four speakers from seven countries presented papers in the symposium and in the workshop, "Microbial Diversity and Cycling of Bioelements," that followed the symposium. Papers presented at the symposium are published in this proceedings. Discussions of the workshop, which were energetic and enthusiastic, are also summarized in this proceedings. The symposium provided an opportunity to address the role of microorganisms in global cycles and as the basic support ofbiodiversity on the planet. Previously unrecognized as both contributing to and sustaining biodiversity, microorganisms are now considered to be primary elements of, and a driving force in, biodiversity. Financial support was provided for the symposium by the CIBA GEIGY Foundation for the Promotion of Science, Naito Foundation, and the Uchida Foundation of the Ocean Research Institute, University of Tokyo. Support from these foundations is gratefully acknowledged. CONTENTS Microbial Biodiversity-Global Aspects ... 1 Rita R. Colwell 2. Importance of Community Relationships in Biodiversity

Coding microbiological data for computers by Morrison Rogosa( Book )

10 editions published in 1986 in English and German and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the title suggests, this book presents an open ended system in which computer techniques facilitate encoding, entry, management, and analysis of microbiological data derived from the study of bacteria, algae, fungi, and protozoa. The system is not constrained by any taxonomie point of view or proprietary computer technology and is freely and easily adaptable to the special needs of special problems. This enables investigators to deal efficiently with unforeseen areas of their investigation or with new data generated by old or new technology. We are sincerely grateful for the invaluable advice and encouragement of Professor V.B.D. Skerman. Many individuals contributed ideas and technical knowledge, and users of the system have contributed data and responsive criticism for more than a decade. Particularly, we acknowledge Lesley Jones for some editorial help; Keith E. McNeil for contributions to Section 7; Elwyn G. McIntyre for invaluable assistance with Section 8; Dr. B. Amdur for major contributions to Section 21; Dr. A.J. Wicken for assistance in expanding and updating Section 23; Dr. S. Feingold for some features of anaerobic bacteria in Section 24; Drs. J

Vibrio ecology, pathogenesis and evolution by Rita R Colwell( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vibrios are Gram-negative bacilli that occur naturally in marine, estuarine, and freshwater systems. Some species include human and animal pathogens capable of causing gastroenteritis, wound infections, cholera, and fatal septicemia. Over the past decades, cutting edge research on Vibrio genomics has promoted a tremendous advance in our knowledge of these pathogens. Significant developments include the discovery of emerging epidemic clones, tracking the spread of new strain variants, and an intensified appreciation of the role of mobile genetic elements in antibiotic resistance spread as well as pathogenesis. Furthermore, improved understanding of the interaction of Vibrios with a variety of living organisms in the aquatic environment has documented the significant role of environmental reservoirs in their seasonal cycle favoring persistence of the pathogen during inter-epidemic periods and enhancing disease transmission. This Research Topic is dedicated to our current understanding in these areas and will bring together leading experts in the field to provide a deep overview of Vibrios ecology and evolution, and will suggest the pathway of future research in this field
