Description of Basic Biotechnology Second Edition


It is some 14 years since the first edition of this book appeared. Much has happened to biotechnology in these intervening years. Recombinant DNA technology which was just beginning in the mid-1980s is now Olle of the major cornerstones of modern biotechnology. Deve.lopments in this area have radically a1tered our concepts of health-care with the arrival of numerous products that were untJünk.able 20 years ago. 

Such is my pace of biotechnology that l can be anticipated in the Da! 14 years that even greater developments will occur thanks [Q such programs as the Human Genome Project which will open up opportunities for treatment of dIseases at the individual level. AH, such advances though Relyon the 31'plication of basic knowledge and the appreciation of how to translate that knowledge into produces mat can be produced safely and as cheaply as possible. The funda.w.emals of biotechnology remain. as always. 

Biotechnology is not just ahouLrecombinant DNA, of cloning and genetics: it is equally aOOm producing more prosaic materials. like citric acid. beer. wine. bread. fermented foods such as cheese and yogurts. antibiotics and the like. Ir I also ¡¡OOut providing de;;)n Techo nolo&)' fol' a new millennium; of providing means of waste disposal. of dealing: with environmental probLems. It is, in short. one of my two major I.e Technologies of the two)'-firstTcrttury mal will sustain gt'ówth and develop. 

It will continue throughout the world IUL' several decades to come. Ir will continue to improve the standard ofal1 our Ives, from improved medical treatments, through. its effects on foods and food supply and into the environment. No aspect of our lives will be uninfected by biotechnology.
