Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The book is a must for all practitioners of marine (and freshwater) biotechnology, as a compendium of what is becoming possible, and of the remaining obstacles on the road to an environmentally acceptable exponential growth in the exploitation of marine resources for the production of safe products. ... the book is of great interest to practitioners of biotechnology in any other domain, microbial, agricultural, and animal.'
Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology, 246 (2000)

Proceedings from the September 1997 conference. Contains 66 contributions arranged in sections covering molecular biology and transgenic animals; natural products and processes; aquaculture; developmental biology; biology of cell factories; bioremediation, extremophiles, and host-pathogen interactions; biodiversity, environmental adaptation, and evolution; and biomarkers, symbiosis, and viruses. Three additional papers report on workshops on fatty acid production and metabolism, biodiversity, an d policy. An introductory tribute to Nino Salvatore recognizes his contributions to this interdisciplinary subject area and to the organization of the conference.
