Microbiology is considered to be the mother of research in all biological sciences including biochemistry, genetics, evolution, biotechnology, herbal formulations etc. Microorganisms are determinants of human health and the source of critical material for medical and industrial use. Genetic engineering and manipulations too, rely on microbial technologies and microbial genes for carrying out modifications that improve crops, breeds of livestock, and synthetic feedstock. In agriculture and food technology, the role of microbes is also very important.
