Life sciences, research plays an important role in the R&D system, for appliances in the multidisciplinary areas, related to living creatures. It generates new knowledge and understanding that provide the foundation for applied research and development. The basic research provides reliable information on multidisciplinary area of the biology for application in the life system, more intensive knowledge creation through basic research could be seen as a way to enhance innovative activities. Life sciences advances go beyond molecular base science. Improvement also puts ahead behavioural sciences and ecology. The greatest advances of the recent past requirement combination of technology which include ecosystem and biodiversity study, biotechnology aspect, proteomic and genomic studies leading to metagenomic and the healthcare using the diagnosis, prevention of disorder and disease. The combination of multidisciplinary research in plants, animals, microorganisms their interaction and the molecular biology, genetic engineering approaches and their advances in cell biology research has taken the life sciences, to the greatest extent for the wide horizons of life. This book deals with the recent trends in life sciences and will be beneficial for the postgraduates and research scholars of life sciences, environmental sciences, molecular biologist and biotechnologists.

  • Presents a compilation of the recent trends in the interdisciplinary fields of life sciences, spread across 20 chapters.
