But today we know much more about these simple processes. With  thehelp of powerful microkcopes  and carefully done expe;iments  in the laboratory, we have come to under tatid that the tiny microbes involved  in these processes are small biochemical factories. And they can be used  for a variety of purposes, related to health, medicine. food, pollution  control ctc.
