Summary Biopolymers can be produced through a variety of mechanisms. They can be derived from microbial systems, extracted from higher organisms such as plants, or synthesized chemically from basic biological building blocks. A wide range of emerging applications rely on all three of these production techniques. In recent years, considerable attention has been given to biopolymers produced by microbes. It is on the microbial level where the tools of genetic engineering can be most readily applied. A number of novel materials are now being developed or introduced into the market. Biopolymers are being developed for use as medical materials, packaging, cosmetics, food additives, clothing fabrics, water treatment chemicals, industrial plastics, absorbents, biosensors, and even data storage elements. This review identifies the possible commercial applications and describes the various methods of production of microbial biopolymers.
