The microbial engineering technologies have been identified as an essential and important subject area of engineering and applied biological sciences. A microbial engineer works on the biological, chemical and engineering aspects of biotechnology, manipulating microbes and developing new uses for microbes. In agriculture, bioprocess engineering, in
