Bacteria are routinely exploited by humans in a number of ways for a wide range of applications. Bacterial enzymes play a key role in dye, textile, paper and pulp industries. In the food industry, lactic acid bacteria are used in the manufacture of a variety of dairy products. In the pharmaceutical industry, bacteria are used to produce medically important enzymes, antibiotics and vaccines. Bacterial cells are used in the biotechnological industry in order to produce biological substances such as fuels, hormones and proteins. Recent products for the treatment of various medical complication such as diabetes, TB, heart attack etc. are derived from bacterial sources. In the current scenario genetically engineered bacteria are employed in bioremediation including petroleum degradation. Plants have been genetically engineered by using Agrobacterium tumefaciens so that they are resistant to herbicides and pests. Using various biotechnologically techniques, bacteria are also bioengineered for the production of therapeutic proteins. Bacteria rapidly adapt to stress condition by altering gene expression. RNA transcripts produced by a population of bacterial cells during gene expression are referred to as a transcriptome. During the last two decades, transcriptomic analysis has become a powerful technology in order to understand the global changes in the gene expression. This special issue will bring together researchers in the field of industrial and biotechnological Bacteriology in order to identify novel research approaches.
