Description of Industrial, Medical and Environmental Applications of Microorganisms

The book Applications of Microorganisms contain for  Environmental, Industrial and Applied Microbiology (BioMicroWorld2013), which was held in Madrid, Spain, from 2 to 4 October 2013. 
This Industrial, Medical and Environmental Applications of Microorganisms fifth edition of the BioMicroWorld conference series gathered 517 participants, coming for 67 countries. This is a more than satisfactory level of attendance for a research forum, especially in the context of a global budget constraint. Nearly 600 works were presented at the conference.
