Cell-surface display is the expression of peptides and
proteins on the surface of living cells by fusing them to
functional components of cells which are exposed to
the environment of cells. This strategy can be carried
out using different surface proteins of cells as anchoring
motifs and different proteins from different sources
as a passenger protein. It is a promising strategy for
developing novel whole cell factories. Surface engineered
cells have many potential uses ranging from
medical to environmental applications. This review
focuses on different strategy and applications of microbial
surface display.
