- About Applied and Environmental Microbiology
Microbiology is the study of all living organisms that are too small to be visible with the naked eye. This includes bacteria, archaea, viruses, fungi, prions, protozoa and algae, collectively known as 'microbes'. Microorganisms are the oldest form of life on Earth and can be found everywhere, from the depths of the ocean to forest floors, and even outer space and beyond. Microbes can multiply in all three habitats except in the atmosphere. Together their numbers far exceed all other living cells on this planet.
What is Applied microbiology?
Applied microbiology is the application of the knowledge of microbiology and microbes to produce useful products such as antibiotics, beverages, wine, cheese, yoghurt, ethanol/alcohol and bread that are beneficial to man and his environment.
Knowledge in microbiology is growing exponentially through the determination of genomic sequences of hundreds of microorganisms and the invention of new technologies, such as genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics, to deal with this avalanche of information. These genomic data are now exploited in thousands of applications, ranging from medicine, agriculture, organic chemistry, public health, and biomass conversion, to biomining.
What is Environmental microbiology?
Environmental microbiology is the study of how microbes interact with the environment and each other, including their effects on the landscape, the spread of viruses and bacteria, the distribution of algae, fungi and parasitical organisms and the associated implications for human health and the environment. Environmental microbiology also researches how microbes can be used to solve global problems. For example, an environmental microbiologist may study the use of microbes to clean up oil spills or other contaminated areas or use organisms that thrive in certain elements to create medicines, topical sunscreens and water purification solutions.
Microorganisms play a fundamental role in the global recycling of matter by releasing carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur from an immense variety of complex organic compounds for reuse by living organisms and in generating energy. The ability of the life support systems of the planet to function depends on the activities of these organisms.
Why to Attend?
Microbiology Expo 2022 will provide the platform for all the researchers, microbiologists, environmentalists, specialists, medical attendants, and professors, doctors who are working in this field of Microbiology to explore their research and share more information about “Microbes- Friend or Foe to Life?”. The conference comprises sessions which intended to offer exhaustive sessions that address current issues in fields of Microbiology.
Accepted abstracts after review process will be published in with unique DOI Be a part of the interactive debates, keynote sessions, plenary sessions, poster sessions, workshops and symposiums. Immense opportunity to hear the presentations conveyed by Eminent Scientists. Get business ideas from business experts from the field of Microbiology.
Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity and is the torch which illuminates the world – Louis Pasteur.
So, we heartily welcome you to take part for the Hilaris Conferences and share your research for a glorious future. We seek the carry of all the stakeholders to fulfill our vision "Join us as a Learner and proceed as a Leader".

The global Applied microbiology market is estimated to account for US$ 10,816.6 Mn in terms of value in 2018 and is expected to reach US$ 20,227.1 Mn by the end of 2027. Increasing development and launch of antibiotics, vitamins, and vaccines is expected to boost growth of the global industrial microbiology market over the forecast period. For instance, in August 2019, Nabriva Therapeutics received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for launch of Xenleta, an antibiotic for the treatment of community-acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP).
Moreover, development of new enzymes is also expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, in January 2020, CARBIOS, a provider of bio-industrial solutions, partnered with Novozymes, a biological solutions company, for the development of Carbios’ proprietary PET-degrading enzymes at both a demonstration level and an industrial scale.North America region held dominant position in the global industrial microbiology market in 2018, accounting for 27.4% share in terms of value, followed by Europe.
