Biotechnology's wide-ranging, multi-disciplinary activities include recombinant DNA techniques, cloning, and the application of microbiology to the production of goods from bread to antibiotics. In this new edition, biology and bioprocessing topics are uniquely combined to provide a complete overview of biotechnology. A distinctive feature of the text is the discussions of the public perception of biotechnology and the business of biotechnology, which set the science in a broader context. This comprehensive textbook is essential reading for all students of biotechnology and applied microbiology, and for researchers in biotechnology industries.

3.0 out of 5 stars Book is just OK December 3, 2013
By Rachel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For classroom purposes...the book is dated with a copyright of 2006; therefore, Internet research is a definite must. It is difficult to use as a reference book because the chapter numbers are not included within the chapters; constantly had to find figures or tables within the chapter just to determine the chapter numbers. Chapter numbers were important to identify the constraints on assignments and exams.

In addition, it was difficult to accurately reference chapters within the book (contains works from several authors) because the copyright dates of other author's work is not included in the book.
