    The importance of microorganisms and their fundamental functions in different contexts is well-documented; they constitute a major part of the world's biomass and play a vital biological role in ecosystems. Microorganisms can be found in almost every part of the biosphere and are utilised in a wide range of applications that encompass food and beverage preparation, genetic engineering and renewable energy.
