About this book

Provides a broad overview of the subject, focusing on how biotechnological techniques are applied to solve environmental problems, rather than giving detailed explanations of the techniques themselves. Capturing the current excitement in a field reinvigorated by advances in genetic manipulation, and emerging genomic and proteomic technologies.

Covers the aspects of biotechnology which are involved with the treatment of existing pollution such as bioremediation of contaminated sites, the treatment of waste from present domestic, industrial and agricultural sources, and the prevention of pollution by providing alternatives.
