Nanotechnology and Molecular Manufacturing: Techniques Risks and Benefits

John F. Killman (Author)

The book Classical Biotechnology: Theory and Practice deals with the elements of Biotechnology, which interest a general students of Biology as he introduced himself to the subject and gradually proceeds to perform practical activities, while observing changes of everybody life. From the advances in Biotechnology in recent years, it is possible to extrapolate to a number of likely developments based n research now in progress. In the plant world, the 1978 development of the “Pomato”, a laboratory –generated combination of two members of the Solanaceae family (the Potato and the tomato), was a significant advance. As regards the progress in the Biotech research exciting prospects are likely to result from industrial-scale plant tissue culture. This may soon obviate the need for rearing whole plants in order to generate whole plants in order to generate valuable commodities such as dyes, flavourings, drugs, and chemicals. Cloning techniques could prove to be the way to tackle some of the acute problems of reforesting in semi-desert areas. Seedlings grown from the cells of mature trees could greatly speed up the process. He Activity Module in the book has been developed over the years of out door classroom practice and laboratory session to explain the Classical facts of biology and Biotechnology (In particular) to the students. The course has been designed to accommodate students of average and below-average academic ability and provide them with practical experiences. Students learn such skills as pruning and plant propagation and the actual biotech facts behind. It the activities listed will not only arouse a general students interest in Biotechnology as a subject, but train him in a very useful way for the life.
