A Textbook on Biotechnology presents an integrated study of biology, cell
biology, chemistry and computer science and illustrates how biotechnology
can be used to develop treatment for diseases and also beneficially alter
genetics of humans and other life forms. Biotechnology is a field of applied
biology which involves the use of living organisms and bioprocesses in
engineering, technology, medicine and other fields which require byproducts.
The book covers diverse topics ranging from molecular biology,
tissue culture, agricultural engineering, genetics, gene therapy, drug design,
genome, probiotics and genetic engineering for animals, plants, microorganisms, bioinformatics and medicine. Designed as a comprehensive
textbook for undergraduate students of Biotechnology, this comprehensive
and lucidly written text will also be useful for Civil Services and other
competitive examinations.

• A separate section on Probiotics
• Over 250 well labelled diagrams and 100 tables to facilitate understanding of the concepts
• Nearly 250 chapter-end problems according to the latest pattern of examination
• Glossary of nearly 400 important technical terms explaining and defining difficult terms used in the text
