BIOTECHNOLOGY is a rapidly-evolving field in which new information is generated at an astronomical rate. Understanding Biotechnology: An Integrated and Cyber-Based Approach is a textbook designed to enable the reader to quickly access the most current information as well as obtain alternative perspectives on various subjects. Furthermore, while the applications of biotechnology are varied, the principles and concepts are essentially the same. Consequently, an integrated approach to the presentation provides a holistic understanding of the subject of biotechnology.

KEY FEATURES:
  • Each chapter begins with a list of Expected Outcomes and ends with an Outcomes Assessment to ensure one's understanding of the material presented
  • Copious photographs and line drawings
  • A list of Internet sites at the end of each chapter, for further reading and graphical illustrations
  • Internet links to sites where significant biotechnology activities are in progress
  • Extensive glossary of terms
  • Coverage of biotechnology applications in agriculture, medicine/health, industry, and environment
  • A discussion of the controversies surrounding the development and application of biotechnology

The book is comprehensive in its coverage and is suitable as a text for an introductory course in general biotechnology in any academic discipline.
