Biotechnology is the exploration to exploitation of biological processes and systems for industrial purposes. The biotechnology and life sciences students at various Indian Universities and engineering institutions are required to take up the allied courses either as a compulsory or an elective subject. This book is written and designed to provide up-to-date information on topics of Biotechnology syllabi. “Biotechnology – Progress & Prospects” is an outcome of Editors' efforts for a handbook, covering diverse scientific backgrounds, of graduate and post-graduate levels in Biotechnology. The book is joint effort of 67 authors from 6 nations. Among them are eminent academicians, renowned scientists and researchers from national, viz IIT, State & Private universities, ICMR & ICAR institutes and international organisations. 29 chapters have been received from US, Australia, Korea, Taiwan, People's Republic of China and India. The focus is to comprehensively cover biotechnology, from basics to applied aspects and illustrate ideas about their applications. The subject matter has been planned in a systematic manner for thorough understanding, using simple language, clear illustrations, and digestible information. Every contributor has brought about blend of expertise and shared professional experience, designing it for the beginners and advanced university students to learn Biotechnology without the need of additional books. Besides the young Biotech researchers, faculty, professionals and policy makers will also find this book handy and useful resource. If we are to feed the world, this book - Biotechnology: Progress and Prospects, will play an encouraging role in human resource development, help students to achieve excellence in this fast growing highly beneficial science of innumerable applications. This text cum reference book is covering the entire width of subject matter under seven sections and twenty nine chapters, right from the Indian scenario of Biotechnology, fundamentals of biomolecules, biochemistry, cell & molecular biology, microbial diversity, mystery of recombinant DNA, principles and application of bioanalytical and biophysical techniques. It also highlights the basics of bioinformatics, genomics, proteomics and lipidomics, animal biotechnology, transgenesis, animal cloning and stem cells technology, medical healthcare and pharmaceutical biotechnology, safety issues, approval and regulation for the industry as well as plant breeding, genetic modification, plant biotechnology of GM crops, agro-biotechnology, biofuels, food biotechnology, nanobiotechnology, bioethics, biosafety and IPR related issues and regulations in the biotech world.
