Title

A Vista for Microbial Ecology and Environmental Biotechnology

Abstract

Microbial ecology and environmental biotechnology are blossoming fields that are taking advantage of profound advances in biology, materials, computing, and engineering. Although traditionally microbial ecology and environmental biotechnology have been distinct disciplines, their futures are intimately linked. Together, they offer much promise for helping society deal with some of its greatest challenges in environmental quality, sustainability, security, and human health.
