Description of Biology is Technology First Edition (PDF)

Biology is Technology First Edition written by Robert H. Carlson is a great Biotechnology book available in (PDF) download. This Biology Is Technology book is the sum of more than a decade of discussions, research, and travel. The effort was made possible only through the generosity and patience of friends, colleagues, and family. The first draft was written while I was a Visiting Scholar in the Comparative History of Ideas Program at the University of Washington; many thanks to John Toews and the late Jim Clowes.

I am especially grateful to Dianne Carlson, Eric Carlson, Drew Endy, Sarah Keller, Rik Wehbring, and anonymous reviewers for reading drafts, providing invaluable comments, and asking hard questions. My journey into thinking about biology’s role in the economy benefited at every step from conversations with my colleagues Stephen Aldrich and James Newcomb at Bio Economic Research Associates (Bio-era). Our intellectual travels through biofuels, pandemics, vaccines, commodities trading, the oil and gas business, and international finance, supplemented by our real-world travels through North America, Asia, and Europe, provided an unparalleled education.
