Description of Basic Biotechnology 3rd Edition (PDF)

Basic Biotechnology 3rd Edition by Calin Ratledge & Bjorn Kristiansen is a great book for biotech students, book available for PDF download. Biotechnology is one of the major technologies of the twenty-first century. Its wide-ranging, multi-disciplinary activities include recombinant DNA techniques, cloning and the application of microbiology and other cellculture technologies to the production of a wide range of goods from bread to antibiotics. It continues to revolutionise treatments of many diseases, and is used to provide clean technologies and to deal with environmental problems.

Basic Biotechnology uniquely combines biology and bioprocessing topics to provide a complete overview of biotechnology. It explains the fundamental principles that underpin all biotechnology and provides a full range of examples showing how these principles are applied; from starting substrate to final product. A distinctive feature of this text are the discussions of the public perception of biotechnology and the business of biotechnology, which set the science in a broader context. This comprehensive text is essential reading for all students and practitioners of biotechnology and for researchers in academia, research institutes and biotechnology industries.

This new edition of Basic Biotechnology reflects these key developments in our subject but, at the same time, this new edition consolidates our knowledge of those fundamental principles of science and engineering that are vital to an understanding of the subject at its basic level. New chapters have been included on several topics both in the fundamentals and principles section as well as in the practical applications section; most of the other chapters have been extensively revised and all have been up-dated.
