Industrial microbiology is a branch of biotechnology that uses microbial science to create mass-produced industrial products, often using small cellular industries. There are many ways to use microorganisms to increase high productivity. The introduction of mutations into living organisms can be accomplished by introducing themselves to mutagens. Another way to increase the production of genes is through the use of plasmids, and vectors. Plasmids and/or vectors are used to insert multiple copies of a specific gene that can allow the production of more enzymes that end up producing more products. Biological deceptions for the production of a particular product have many functions in the real world such as the production of other antibiotics, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, solvents, alcohol, and daily products. Microorganisms play a major role in the industry, in many ways to be used. Medically, bacteria can be used to create antibiotics to treat infections. Bacteria can also be used in the food industry. Germs are very useful in making some of the most widely used human products. The chemical industry also uses microorganisms to synthesize amino acids and natural solvents. Bacteria can be used in agricultural applications to be used as pesticides instead of using harmful chemicals and or injections to help plant growth.
