Media reviews
This book serves as an excellent introduction to biopharmaceuticals and as a source of references for those wanting more details. --Monique S.]. Simmonds, in The Journal of Experimental Agriculture, 2011, volume 47 (I) "Today, molecular farming represents an extremely heterogeneous field, due to the large variety of different production hosts examined and further complications derived from the different cultivation systems employed. ...the book provides a comprehensive overview of the different approaches taken over the last 20 years since the first heterologous expression of a monoclonal antibody in tobacco." --Dr. Stefan Jennewein, Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology, in ChemMedChem, 2010.
