Available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Biotechnology and its Applications: Using Cells to Change the World, Second Edition introduces students to the world of biotechnology in a way that runs deeper than a mere survey. Sections cover basic science, introduce cells, explain how they behave, what they are made of, demonstrate the biotechnological application of scientific principles in the laboratory, and present biotechnologies “in the real world. Examples include recombinant proteins available to millions of patients, plants that have been engineered to produce food for people around the world, and regenerative medicine that may someday allow patients to receive organs that have been grown from their own cells. The updated edition has been expanded with the most current information available, with new chapters on gene editing, bioremediation, vaccines and immunotherapy, and processing and manufacturing, thus resulting in a modern, robust, yet highly readable applications-oriented introduction to biotechnology. Takes an integrated approach from first principles, integrating cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, and health science Presents side topics of interest throughout (“gee whiz topics) to give students quick mental breaks while still extending their knowledge in a practical sense Contains a greatly improved, robust teaching pedagogy to aid student learning Features new chapter learning objectives, chapter summaries, highlighted key terms, more end-of-chapter questions, and a new glossary
