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.

Formation and Control of Biofilm in Various Environments Book Review:

This book provides excellent techniques for detecting and evaluating biofilms: sticky films on materials that are formed by bacterial activity and produce a range of industrial and medical problems such as corrosion, sanitary problems, and infections. Accordingly, it is essential to control biofilms and to establish appropriate countermeasures, from both industrial and medical viewpoints. This book offers valuable, detailed information on these countermeasures. It also discusses the fundamentals of biofilms, relates various substrates to biofilms, and presents a variety of biofilm reactors. However, the most important feature of this book (unlike others on the market) is its clear focus on addressing the practical aspects from an engineering viewpoint. Therefore, it offers an excellent practical guide for engineers and researchers in various fields, and can also be used as a great academic textbook.

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.
