This book represents a crystallization of some of the leading-edge research and development topics evolving in the field of biotechnology. It comprises 19 Chapters from an extensive background of leading authors, covering topics ranging from Plant, Medical, Microbial, Animal to General Biotechnology. The key idea was to bring multiple cutting-edge topics in biotechnology into a single text, as a handy tool for students, scholars and practitioners interested in related topics.
All of the material in this book was developed under rigorous peer review, with appeal to a broad range of readers ranging from social scientists to students and researchers. A substantial proportion of the material is original, and has been prepared specifically for this book; part was put together from published articles.
The publishing process was considerably longer than usual partly due to the novelty of the papers and partially due to the fact that the referees were relatively more cautious with several of the papers, which were substantially innovative.
