KlappentextThis book provides a clear, practical, and illuminating guide to the ideas and terminology of Biotechnology. Biotechnology is one of the fastest growing, most exciting, and most controversial areas of science and technology in the 21st Century, an industry worth billions and a political topic
that has shaken governments. It has already produced scientific achievements, from cloning to sequencing the genome, which would have seemed miraculous 20 years ago, and an industry with thousands of companies spanning the world. But this is based on a set of scientific disciplines with their own
jargon, ideas, and limitations. This book describes those ideas and terms, and what they really mean for science, industry, and society. In 300 entries from ADEPT through cloning, genomes, patents, and viruses to zoonosis, A to Z provides over 300 concise entries describing what the science is, what
it does, and the reality of how it has been used, and could be applied. It can be read cover to cover, or dipped into for a quick understanding of the topic.
ZusammenfassungA guide to the ideas and terminology of Biotechnology. This work includes 300 entries that span from ADEPT through cloning, genomes, patents, and viruses to zoonosis. It is a useful resource for anyone wanting access to the world of biotechnologists.
