An Index to the Chemical Action of Micro-organisms on the Non-Nitrogenous Organic Compounds

    Abstract

    THIS book, is a useful aid to biochemists wishing to know where to obtain information about the chemical action of micro-organisms. The contents are tabulated to show the action of each organism on all the substrates which have been examined and in each case the products found, the authority, and the reference to the literature. Each item is cross-referenced under “Substrate” and again under “Products”. So far as the writer has been able to test it, the information is fairly complete. The present instalment deals only with organic, non-nitrogenous substances, and it is to be hoped that a further section dealing with other substrates will soon appear.
