Biotech's Dictionary of Microbiology

Dinesh Arora (Editor) Dinesh Arora (Compiler)
Synopsis The term 'dictionary' for a layman means a reference book that consists of a list of words along with their meanings. And, when one talks of a dictionary, he or she is implicitly understood as referring to a dictionary of English words. But, unlike what our minds are tuned to think, a person who is talking about a dictionary might just be talking about a glossary of terms belonging to a particular subject. This is exactly where our series comes in the picture. The series consists of dictionaries on varied subjects, ranging from common topics like Commerce and Botany, to very profound and complicated subjects like Entomology and Toxicology. The use of simple and easily comprehensible language, along with real life examples and appropriate pictures, fosters an enriching learning experience for the readers, thereby making each and every volume a must buy. Microbiology is a rapidly evolving science. Since Louis Pasteur proved the existence of microbes or micro-organisms, they have been studied by biologists. When fleming discovered Penicillin, the wonder drug made by a variety of yeast, a new frontier was crossed by mankind. Preservation of food (including milk) for long time and new substances created by tiny organisms as well as diseases caused by them occupied biologists and doctors for a long time. Only near the end of 20th century, something qualitatively new happened when it became possible to introduce genes from one cell into another. Now, it is possible to introduce human genes into bacteria and make it produce insulin. This new technique of genetic engineering is also a part of microbiology. In this dictionary, we present all the technical words that the reader may need to participate in this adventure of human mind. DNA recombinant technology gene meiosis, pasteurisation you name it, and it is all there.
