Biotechnology concerns the practical application of organisms or their components. Historically, biotechnology was an art, involved in the production of wines, beers, and cheeses. Today it involves a series of advanced technologies spanning biology, chemistry, and process engineering. In recent years innovations involving genetic engineering have had a major impact on biotechnology. Its applications are diverse, including the production of new drugs, transgenic organisms and biological fuels, gene therapy and clearing up pollution. Written in a readily accessible way, describes the history, techniques and applications of biotechnology and discusses the ethical issues raised by this modern science. The third edition of this successful book has nearly doubled in size to take account of recent advances. It is important reading for anyone, from interested college undergraduates to professionals active in this field.
