  Introduction. Water can support and host an array of pathogenic [] and non-pathogenic microorganisms, amongst which are bacteria, fungi, viruses, protozoa, helminths and Schistosoma [].As such, a fundamental aspect of safeguarding public health is the routine microbiological analysis of drinking water for early detection of microbial contamination and assessing sources of deterioration in ?id=/   The importance of drinking water activity aw in food systems cannot be overemphasized. Throughout record drinking water activity in food has been managed by optimizing its use either through drying, addition of sugars, salt or freezing. These procedures prevent spoilage and The commercial importance of Bacillus lies mainly in the area of enzyme pro­ duction for the food, drink, and detergent markets. Increasingly, however, the ability of Bacillus to secrete proteins, coupled with its regulatory acceptability, has resulted in strenuous efforts to develop species of Bacillus as hosts for the produc­ tion of value  › Biomedical Sciences › Medical Microbiology.
