The book “Lactic Acid Bacteria as Cell Factories,” edited by my esteemed collaborator and dear friend, Dr. Didier Montet, alongside other prominent researchers, has finally been released.
Within its pages, my team and I have contributed two chapters, each exploring the remarkable potential of lactic acid bacteria in distinct areas of scientific inquiry.
Chapter 9, titled “Lactic Acid Bacteria for the Generation of Bioactive Peptides,” was co-authored with Dr. Titilayo Adenike Ajayeoba, an accomplished Associate Professor at Adeleke University in Nigeria. Together, we delved into the fascinating realm of bioactive peptide production facilitated by lactic acid bacteria, uncovering their immense promise for numerous applications.
Moreover, Chapter 14, named “Lactic Acid Bacteria as Biocontrol Agents of Food Pathogens,” was a collaborative effort between myself and Dr. Omotola Olagunju, a Senior Lecturer at Teeside University in the UK. In this chapter, we explored the invaluable role of lactic acid bacteria as potent biocontrol agents, harnessing their remarkable abilities to combat food pathogens and enhance food safety.
Through our collective expertise and tireless dedication, we hope that our contributions will not only enrich the scientific community but also inspire further advancements and innovations in the field of lactic acid bacteria research.
Together with the comprehensive collection of chapters authored by leading experts in the field, this book stands as a testament to the vast potential and significance of lactic acid bacteria as versatile cell factories, paving the way for a future brimming with possibilities.
