  • About the Author

Essentials of Biotechnology is meant for undergraduate biotechnology and life sciences' students. The book discusses the basics of interdisciplinary subjects which is required for developing the conceptual understanding in biotechnology and to acquire research attitude. It elaborates fundamental concepts which are absolutely necessary for budding biotechnologists. It is an attempt to cover broad spectrum of biological dimensions with biotechnological exploration.
Section-I elaborates theoretical aspects of basic biology, biochemistry, microbiology, molecular biology with correlation to modern applied aspects.
Section-II is grounded in the experimental approach. Each experiment is described with sufficient details. The figures and tables provided with experiments will be helpful to the students and the instructor for better understanding of the scientific principles and skillful execution of the experiments.

Salient Features:

  • The subject matter is divided in two parts; part one forms the theoretical foundation covering the broad spectrum of biological dimensions with biotechnological exploration, and part two includes the experiments to support the theory.
  • Structure, mode of action and biological significance of the topics covered has been elaborated appropriately.
  • Abundantly illustrated with figures and tables for better understanding of scientific principles and skillful execution of experiments.
  • The 36 experiments includes principle as well as procedure; relevant calculations, and result and interpretation.
