Biotechnology has not stood still since 1991 when the first edition of Biotechnology - The Science and the Business was published. It was the first book to treat the science and business of technologyas an integrated subject and was well received by both students of biotechnology and business professionals. All chapters in this second edition have been updated and revised and some new chapters have been introduced, including one covering the use of molecular genetic techniques in forensic science. The book is a collection of contributions, by experts in their respective fields, that provides a realistic balance of science and business. A wide range of biotechnologies is included, covering such diverse fields as pesticides, the flavor and fragrance industry, oil production, fermentation and protein engineering to name but a few. On the business side, subjects include managing, financing, and regulation of biotechnology, both in Europe and the USA. Some knowledge of the science behind the technologies is assumed, as well as a layperson's view of buying and selling. As with the first edition, it is expected that this book will be of interest to biotechnology undergraduates, postgraduates and those working in the industry, along with students of business, economics, intellectual property law and communications.
