Unlike most biotechnology textbooks, Dr. David P. Clark's Biotechnology approaches modern biotechnology from a molecular basis, which grew out of the increasing biochemical understanding of physiology. Using straightforward, less-technical jargon, Clark manages to introduce each chapter with a basic concept that ultimately evolves into a more specific detailed principle. This up-to-date text covers a wide realm of topics, including forensics and bioethics, using colorful illustrations and concise applications.
This book will help readers understand molecular biotechnology as a scientific discipline, how the research in this area is conducted, and how this technology may impact the future.
