    Editorial Reviews

    "Doran (Swinburne U. of Technology, Australia) revises her 1995 graduate and undergraduate textbook for students of molecular biology, biotechnology, and related disciples who have little or no engineering background but want to become familiar with the processes by which biological discoveries are transformed into commercial products. Her emphasis is on the underlying scientific and engineering principles rather than on specific biotechnology applications, she says, so most of the material in the first edition remains relevant. There have been some significant developments, however, and she includes new sections on sustainable bioprocessing and metabolic engineering. Overall, she covers introductory matters, material and energy balances, physical processes, and reactions and reactors."--Reference & Research Book News October 2012
