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 straight forward, 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 what molecular biotechnology actually is as a scientific discipline, how the research in this area is conducted, and how this technology may…
