The book makes elaborate presentation on radiommunoassays, enzyme immunoabsorbent assays, genetic recombination, pharmaceutical products and solar energy that have immensely impacted the field of biotechnology. The book provides tremendous utility to students, teachers, researchers, farmers and general readers.
