Science and Technology Against Microbial Pathogens Book Review:

The aim of this book is to disseminate the most recent research in science and technology against microbial pathogens presented at the first edition of the ICAR Conference Series (ICAR2010) held in Valladolid, Spain, in November 2010. This volume is a compilation of 86 chapters written by active researchers that offer information and experiences and afford critical insights into anti-microbe strategies in a general context marked by the threat posed by the increasing antimicrobial resistance of pathogenic microorganisms. “Anti” is here taken in a wide sense as “against cell cycle, adhesion, or communication”, and when harmful for the human health (infectious diseases, chemotherapy etc.) and industry or economy (food, agriculture, water systems etc.) The book examines this interesting subject area from antimicrobial resistance (superbugs, emerging and re-emerging pathogens etc.), to the use of natural products or microbes against microbial pathogens, not forgetting antimicrobial chemistry, physics and material science. Readers will find in a single volume, up-to-date information of the current knowledge in antimicrobial research. The book is recommended for researchers from a broad range of academic disciplines that are contributing in the battle against harmful microorganisms, not only those more traditionally involved in this research area (microbiologists, biochemists, geneticists, clinicians etc.), but also experimental and theoretical/computational chemists, physicists or engineers.

Biofilm Systems VI Book Review:

Biofilm processes are now known to play hugely important roles in water treatment and the water environment: there is a rapidly expanding body of research leading to better understanding of biofilm processes in biofilm reactors and natural systems, biofouling and biocorrosion. This issue of Water Science and Technology is developed from work originally presented at the Biofilm Systems VI conference, at which over 225 delegates examined the state of the art in biofilm systems research. The contributions ranged from applied to basic research, and covered wastewater and drinking water applications. Following a full peer review 62 papers were selected for this issue. Several trends were observed: the use of genomic tools as enabling more in-depth studies of the microbial ecology of biofilms; developing computational methods for modelling biofilm processes leasding to better understanding of biofilm systems; aerobic granular sludge as a rapidly emerging new reactor technology (featured in a state-of-the-art paper); and biofouling in membrane systems for water treatment. More traditional biofilm systems such as biological aerated filters remain important with evaluations of how these technologies are fulfilling the promises originally offered.

Marine Niche Applications in Pharmaceutical Sciences Book Review:

This book offers a comprehensive study of biological molecules acquired from marine organisms, which have been exploited for drug discovery with the aim to treat human diseases. Biomolecules have potential impacts on a diverse range of fields, including medical and pharmaceutical science, industrial science, biotechnology, basic research, molecular science, environmental science and climate change, etc. To understand and effectively apply medicinally important biomolecules, multidisciplinary approaches are called for. The ocean remains a rich biological resource, and the vast untapped potential of novel molecules from marine bio-resources has caught the interest of more and more researchers. These novel biological compounds have never been found in terrestrial or other ecosystems, but only in this rich niche. Advances in sampling techniques and technologies, along with increased funding for research and nature conservation, have now encouraged scientists to look deeper in the waters. Aquaculture supports both tremendous seafood production and the bulk production of marine-derived drugs. Furthermore, molecular methods are now being extensively employed to explore the untapped marine microbial diversity. With the help of molecular and biotech tools, the ability of marine organisms to produce new biosynthetic drugs can be greatly enhanced. This book provides an extensive compilation of the latest information on marine resources and their undisputedly vital role in the treatment of diverse ailments.
