With the advances in the field of molecular biology, new tools make it possible to conduct in-depth studies in food microbial communities from a molecular perspective. Information from genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomic studies can be integrated through bioinformatic applications, thereby improving our understanding of the interactions between biotic and abiotic factors and concomitantly the physiology of starter cultures, spoilage and pathogenic microbiota. Improvements in the speed, accuracy and reliability of food quality and safety assessment have made the foundation stronger for future developments including the exploitation of gene networks and applications of nanotechnology and systems biology. This book reviews all these developments, provides an integrated view of the subject and helps in identifying areas of future development. Key selling features: Presents information from genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic studies, integrated through bioinformatic tools Discusses all the significant developments that have altered the classical microbiological perspective Addresses all recent advances affecting food quality and safety assessment and microecosystem exploitation ormation from genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic studies, integrated through bioinformatic tools Discusses all the significant developments that have altered the classical microbiological perspective Addresses all recent advances affecting food quality and safety assessment and microecosystem exploitation
