"Looking beyond the hype of get-rich-quick investment schemes, Biotech Industry: A Global, Economic, and Financing Overview provides CEOs and other upper-level managers with a comprehensive, critical analysis of the biotechnology business from a uniquely Pan-Asia perspective." "With a cutting-edge focus for forward-thinking business leaders, this reliable reference offers a clear vision of the global biotech market through 2010, including which regions and corporations are best positioned to dominate the market." Private and government-sponsored laboratories in Asia are scrambling to develop many of the core technologies that will drive biotechnology developments in the United States, European Union, Australia, and elsewhere. Biotech Industry: A Global, Economic, and Financing Overview offers valuable insight into where this major research is being conducted, where it's being applied, and where money and intellectual capital are flowing.
