About this book

The most up-to-date and comprehensive collection of all terms of this essential field of modern life sciences! With more than 6000 technical terms, The Dictionary of Gene Technology reflects the importance of gene technology for present-day biology. Extensive explanations and illustrations accompany the terms, providing admirably clear access to the complexities of this vital discipline. Moreover, The Dictionary of Gene Technology elucidates the jungle of synonyms, acronyms and swamps of jargon that have frustrated many a researcher. The multitude of cross-references enables non-specialists and experts alike to understand links to related sciences such as genetics, biotechnology, microbiology and biochemistry. Students, researchers, officials and journalists will soon find it difficult to imagine tackling gene technology without the assistance of this user-friendly dictionary.

...this book should be available within hand's reach for everyone who is...involved with molecular biology and gene technology. (Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Vol. 40, No. 23, December 3, 2001) "the content cannot be faulted, nor can the clarity of the text and diagrams" (Chromatographia, March 2002) " excellent reference book..." (E-Streams, Vol. 5, No. 7) "...Kahl updates his broad reference on the several specialties of genetic research to account for the explosion in terminology..."
