A look at the forefront of an industry revolution

""I've been deep inside the biotech industry since its infancy. This book provides fresh insights about how it started, what drives it, and most importantly, where it's going.""--Scott W. Morrison, partner, Ernst & Young LL

Richard W. Oliver predicted the onset of a new era with The Coming Biotech Age. Now that age is here--and companies are reaping the benefits of this incredible new revolution. As biotech companies become the new economic engines of growth and innovation, businesses must have access to the latest developments of this area of research.

In a special revised edition, now titled The Biotech Age, Oliver has created the first practical guide to this fascinating realm of scientific development. With updated information on the latest research, examples of biotech breakthroughs, and a close examination of current biotech issues such as cloning and stem cell research, The Biotech Age presents an accessible overview of the business of biotechnology and its vast implications and opportunities for all types of industries.

This is a topic no one can afford to miss--especially future-minded executives and investors in cutting-edge technologies.

Dark fur, either black, silky fur that shines in moonlight; or dull, black fur for hiding in dark. You choose. <p> Gray eyes, one eye has a few green flecks, the other just one. You can take the flecks out if you want. <p> Parents: me and Striking; adopted father is Avalanche. <p> Anything else is up to you.
