Basic Biotechnology Summary

Basic Biotechnology by Colin Ratledge (University of Hull)

Biotechnology impinges on everyone's lives. It is one of the major technologies of the twenty-first century. Its huge, wide-ranging, multi-disciplinary activities include recombinant DNA techniques, cloning and genetics, and the application of microbiology to the production of goods as every-day as bread, beer, cheese and antibiotics. It continues to revolutionise treatments of many diseases, and is used to provide clean technologies and to deal with environmental problems. Basic Biotechnology is a mainstream account of the current state of biotechnology, written to provide the reader with insight, inspiration and instruction into the skills and arts of the subject. It does this by explaining the fundamental aspects that underpin all biotechnology and provides examples of how these principles are put into operation: from starting substrate to final product. The book is essential reading for all students and teachers of biotechnology and applied microbiology and for researchers in the many biotechnology industries.

Basic Biotechnology Reviews

' ... the book is well presented, with clear and instructive diagrams and useful glossaries for those subject matters that come with their own specific nomenclature. It will certainly be a good resource for anybody who wants to study biotechnology or move into the field from another discipline.' Chemistry in Britain
'The two editors are to be congratulated for providing a very pertinent and practical textbook ... highly recommended as a test for biotechnology students and it is a good starting point for teachers and researchers also.' Pak-Lam Yu, Biotechnology Advances
'... a useful reference tool for a comprehensive understanding of the fundamentals behind the current applications of biotechnology.' Kakoli Ghosh, Food, Nutrition and Agriculture
'... essential reading for a whole range of people. students and those involved in biotechnology: those involved in its wider application and those in public life who have to formulate policy: protesting types: and, those who lose sleep worrying about the future, can all benefit from the broad overview.' Peter Spedding, Chemistry and Industry
