  • About the Author

Advances in Life Sciences provides state-of-the-art information and highlights the current developments in life sciences. It encompasses topics on viruses to crop plants, comprising seventeen reviews and six original articles. For the benefit of graduate and postgraduate students and researchers, a chapter on the use of internet for searching scientific literature is included. Subjects covered include stress biology, phytotaxis, biological nitrogen fixation and its biotechnology, community ecology, microbial production of drugs, cosmetics and other bioactive compounds, long-term storage of useful microbes, methods to transfer genes into multicellular organisms and gene expression. The book provides an insight in future perspectives in particular field with extensive bibliographies at the end of each chapter. The book will be highly useful and must-read for students, researchers and professionals in botany, environmental sciences, agriculture, molecular biology and life sciences.

Salient Features:

  • A compilation of 24 articles, the book deals with the changing trends in the approach of life sciences.
  • Contributed by 47 eminent scientists and academicians from India and a few other regions of the world.
  • Topics include bacterial biotechnology, cryopreservation, HIV research, genetics, phytogeography, agricultural crops, and the internet as source of information and so on.
  • Provides information on newer techniques and use of these tools to some of the basic problems in life sciences.
  • Each article includes an abstract and keywords, and gives a concluding remarks or future prospects.
