About the book
Cyanobacteria have an enormous ecological role ranging from harmful algal blooms to carbon dioxide mitigation. Their extraordinary metabolic machinery enables them to flourish in diverse habitats. The valorization of biomass can yield a plethora of high-value products. The secondary metabolites that are produced by cyanobacteria include pigments, polysaccharides, phenols, hydrogen, and many more. The biofuels like hydrogen, bioethanol, syngas, and many more can be produced which find applications as alternate energy sources and address vital environmental issues related to non-renewable energy sources. These biofuels are very sustainable and eliminating the research gaps can further lead to the commercial production of cyanobacterial biofuels in the market across the world. The range of metabolic products is tremendously valuable as antimicrobial, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antitumor, antioxidative in nature, which has excellent therapeutic applications.
This book envisions elaborating on the recent advancements and the new perspectives in the area of cyanobacterial research on the global platform.
