Biotechnology is one of the major new technologies of the twenty-first century that covers multi-disciplinary issues, including recombinant DNA techniques, cloning, genetics, and the application of microbiology to the production of goods. It continues to revolutionize treatments of many diseases, and it is used to deal with environmental solutions. The Biotechnology Procedures and Experiments Handbook provides practicing professionals and biotechnology students over 150 applied, up-to-date laboratory techniques and experiments related to modern topics such as recombinant DNA, electrophoresis, stem cell research, genetic engineering, microbiology, tissue culture, and more. Each lab technique includes 1)a principle, 2)the necessary reagents, 3)a step by step procedure, and 4)a final result. Also included is a section that shows how to avoid potential pitfalls of a specific experiment. The book is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing simulations, white papers, and other relevant material to biotechnology.
