Chapter
Given the overexploitation of horseshoe crabs everywhere in the world, and due to the insufficient data on their inhabitants, it is very decisive that genomic distinction analysis are done to evaluate their patterns and levels of genetic dissimilarity for constant monitoring and managing of their inhabitants. Phylogenetic studies are significant fo...

The global consumption of manganese is rising due to its growing industrial requirement while the natural reserves of manganese are diminishing at an alarming rate. Consequently, recovery of manganese from metal containing wastes has become highly crucial. Bioleaching of metal from wastes using microbes provides an adequate advantage over the tradi...

Mineral resources have been counted as public assets with economic benefit since time immemor-ial. Due to the rising issue of decreasing mineral deposits, recovery of metals from several waste residues has become progressively more essential. Novel and efficient recycling processes have been on the rise globally. Manganese (Mn) as the fourth most i...
Chapter
There is a large assortment of microbes that are capable of producing toxins that cause foodborne diseases. At present, foodborne infections are a widespread communal health problem and it is thus essential to identify foodborne pathogens for reducing foodborne diseases. Several conventional microbiological identification techniques are time-consum...
Article
Conventional leaching methods for Manganese (Mn) recovery require strong acids and are threatening to the environment. Alternatively, the use of microbes for Mn recovery is environment friendly in nature. The present investigation compares the capacity of pure and mixed cultures of native bacterial strains for bioleaching of low grade Mn ores. The...

... Bioengineering has been helping to improve the worldwide healthcare by giving more and better alternatives to the current medical treatments [30]. This promising and powerful technology combining the engineering principles with the native systems and medical knowledge, has been witnessing massive advances in fields such as artificial organs, medical imaging, diagnostic tools, prosthetic implants, bionics, biosensors, drug delivery systems and protein science [31]. The panoply of pathologies that can be reached is immensurable, where some are very well known and mastered by clinicians and others are still very recent, such as COVID-19, and need to be solved [32]. ...
... According to the general definition proposed by Liu et al. (2019), microfibers (MFs) are any natural or artificial fibrous materials of threadlike structure with a diameter less than 50 μm, length ranging from 1 μm to 5 mm, and length to diameter ratio greater than 100 [34]. Microplastics, especially MFs, contaminate and affect many aquatic organisms or species of birds or mammals that feed on aquatic species since they are often mistaken for food and ingested by prey species, which, in turn, are eaten by predators, allowing MPs to move up the trophic chain [35,36]. ...

... Since Mn availability in soils is determined by pH, microbe-mediated rhizosphere acidification would improve plant Mn acquisition. Examples of bacterial mobilization of Mn can be seen in some acidophilic bacteria strains, such as Acinetobacter sp. and Lysinibacillus sp., which were used for Mn bioleaching from ores or mining waste water (Sanket et al. 2017, Ghosh et al. 2018. Similarly, Mn solubilizing fungal strains, such as Aspergillus terreus and Penicillium daleae, have been isolated from low-grade Mn mine tailings, and their Mn solubilizing ability was attributed to the mycelia production of organic acids such as oxalic acid, citric acid, maleic acid and gluconic acid (Mohanty et al. 2017). ...
... Traditional culture-based methods for detecting microorganisms are labor-intensive and time-consuming [3]. Although various molecular biological detection methods, such as enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and in situ hybridization assays, have been developed, the simultaneous diagnosis of microorganisms remains challenging [4]. To overcome this limitation, developing a detection method that can quickly, sensitively, and simultaneously analyze multiple microorganisms is necessary. ...
