Overview

Biotechnology is a fast-developing 21st century technology and interdisciplinary science that has already made an impact on commercial and non-commercial aspects of human life, such as stem cell research, cloning, pharmaceuticals, food and agriculture, bioenergetics, and information technology.

This book, appropriate for novices to the biotechnology / genetics fields and also for engineering and biology students, covers all of the fundamental principles of these modern topics. It has been written in a very simple manner for self-study and to explain the concepts and techniques in detail. In addition to the comprehensive coverage of the standard topics, such as cell growth and development, genetic principles(mapping, DNA, etc), protein structure, plant and animal cell cultures, and applications, the book includes up-to-date discussions of modern topics, e.g., medical advances, quality control, stem cell technology, genetic manipulation, patents, bioethics, and a review of mathematics. The accompanying CD-ROM provides simulations, figures, white papers, related Web sites and numerous other resources.
