The first part of the book gives an insight in to the fundamentals of biotechnology with a detailed discussion on the basic structure and functioning of living organisms including cells, organelles, chromosomes, replication, structure and function of biomolecules and fundamentals ofbiochemical reactions as well as genetics and molecular biology. The subsequent part of the book gives an in-depth knowledge of biotechnological fundamental techniques such as recombinant DNA technology, genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, enzyme biotechnology, microbiology, plant and animalbiotechnology, immunology, and environmental biotechnology. The book also covers bioethics and IPR. Owing to its vast and in-depth coverage of topics, it would be useful as a reference text for postgraduate students as well.
