About this book

The recent advances in the field of Biotechnology cannot simply be ascribed to one scientific discipline. Rather, scientists from various backgrounds, ranging from fundamental physics and chemistry to the (bio) applied sciences, have joined their efforts in order to make this new era of "high-tech" biotechnology possible.
In the present volume of "Focus on Biotechnology", a selected group of distinguished experts describe how their field succeeded in developing the new frontiers of biotechnology. The physical or chemical underlying principles form the core of each chapter, which ends with a sketch of anticipated developments during the next decade.
Audience: Any self-respecting scientist who aims to implement his work within the framework of practical applications will find "Focus on Biotechnology - Physics and Chemistry basis Biotechnology" a must-have volume.
