Biotechnology: a comprehensive treatise in 8 volumes, Volume 7, Part 2
This is the last volume to appear in the successful ten-volume series 2Biotechnology2, the largest yet to have been published on the subject. Over thirty experts from universities, institutes, and industry describe the most recent findings in this fascinating area of molecular biology. Basic insights, methods, and safety measures relating to the production and use of artificial genes are presented. In contrast to other volumes in the series, topics not usually considered in terms of microbial fermentation technology are discussed. They include recombinant plants, transgenic animals, recombinant microorganisms, engineered proteins, and human gene therapy. The gene technological aspects of more traditional products (such as organic acids, vitamins, enzymes, pharmaceutical proteins, vaccines, hormones) are also treated in detail.
