About this book

The greatest advances of the recent past which include ecosystem and biodiversity study, biotechnology aspect, proteomic and genomic studies leading to metagenomic and the health care 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. The present book deals with life sciences which includes biodiversity and its conservation, sustainable development, bioprospecting, carbon dioxide sequestration, microbial interactions, bioinformatics, bioelectromagnetics, phytoremediation, reuse and recycling of industrial waste, smog pollution, metagenomics, cancer research, immune system, sleep benefits and climate change. Recent Trends in Life Sciences will be beneficial for the postgraduates and research scholars of life sciences, environmental sciences, molecular biologist and biotechnologist.
