Ravi Pathak (Author)

Biotechnology is gaining in importance in the modern world and is often quoted as the next big thing after information technology, owing to its benefits to man.  It has enabled the organisms to become more resistant to disease, influenced the rate of fruit ripening and has increased productivity of crops, thereby solving the global problem of food shortages.  Accordingly, the study of biotechnology is significant and its scope is vast as new techniques are being evolved frequently.  The present book Introduction to Biotechnology is an ideal book for the students interested in pursuing a career in biotechnology.  With the balanced coverage of basic molecular biology, historical developments and contemporary applications, the book describes in detail the processes and methods used to manipulate living organisms or the substances and products from these organisms for medical, agricultural and industrial purposes.  It acquaints the readers with genetic engineering, bioinformatics, animal and plant biotechnology, environmental biotechnology, bioethics and biosafety.  In addition, the book provides a glossary of terms and select bibliography which facilitate easy understanding and further reference.  It is hoped that the book would be highly useful for both undergraduates and graduates, teachers of the subject as well as general readers interested in biotechnology and keen to known the latest development, methods and applications in this arena.
