Until recently, agriculture was seen as a minor customer of the pharmaceutical industry. However, as this book amply demonstrates, agriculture may be poised to become a much more important supplier rather than consumer of pharmaceuticals. This book is the most comprehensive and up-to-date compilation of bio-farming strategies to provide health products that are both safer and lower-cost than those produced conventionally. The style and information presented assumes a university undergraduate level of genetics and biology. Technical information regarding the methods used and the results, as well as perspectives on commercialization and regulation, is provided by scientists prominent in this diverse and burgeoning field. This book is an invaluable resource for undergraduate and graduate students, university faculty, and researchers in government and corporate labs, as well as research managers, planners, and consultants in biotechnology.
