About this book

Animal Cell Technology will provide an insight into biological and engineering concepts related to mammalian and insect cell technology, as well as provide an overview of the applications of animal cell technology. The interest in this area of science has grown significantly in recent years so this book will be suitable for undergraduates who wish to learn from the basics upwards, and for postgraduates and scientists in the expanding biopharmaceutical industry who wish to build upon their existing knowledge base.

The authors of the chapters are leaders of internationally-recognized animal cell culture research and have extensive experience in the areas covered in their respective chapters.
