There is an increasing interest in environmental biotechnology owing to a worldwide need to feed the world's growing population and to maintain clean soil, air and water. The major technological developments are in plant and microbial biology. Plants can be more readily engineered for resistances that enhance yield or produce new products whereas microorganisms are exploited for their catalytic diversity and ease of genetic engineering.
