Industrial microbiology is a branch of biotechnology that makes use of microbial sciences to mass-produce industrial products. To increase maximum product yields, a microorganism can be manipulated in a variety of ways. It is possible to introduce mutations into an organism by exposing it to mutagens. The manipulation of species to produce a particular commodity has a variety of real-world uses, including the manufacture of antibiotics, vitamins, carbohydrates, amino acids, solvents, alcohol, and other everyday products. Industrial microbiology has applications in the medical field, the food industry, fermentation, agriculture, biopesticides, wastewater management, metabolic engineering, chemical applications, and pharmaceutical growth.
