New edition of ASM Press biotechnology text announced
Date:2/25/2010

Acclaimed by students and instructors, Molecular Biotechnology: Principles and Applications of Recombinant DNA is now in its fourth edition, bringing it thoroughly up to date with the latest findings and the latest industrial, agricultural, pharmaceutical, and biomedical applications.

"It has been estimated that worldwide there are currently several thousand biotechnology companies employing tens of thousands of scientists. When the exciting science being done at universities, government labs, and research institutes around the world is factored in, the rate of change and of discovery in the biological sciences is astounding. This fourth edition of Molecular Biotechnology, building upon the fundamentals that were established in the previous three editions, endeavors to provide readers with a window on some of the major developments in this growing field in the past several years," says Bernard Glick of the University of Waterloo who co-authored the book with Jack Pasternak also of the University of Waterloo and Cheryl Patten of the University of New Brunswick.

This fourth edition features greatly expanded coverage of the latest innovations in DNA sequencing techniques, therapeutics, vaccines, transgenic plants, and transgenic animals. At the same time, the text maintains all the hallmarks that have made it a bestseller. These include its straightforward, jargon-free writing style and its extensive use of nearly 645 figures (240 new figures) that help students make sense of complex biological systems and processes. These features not only enable students to grasp core concepts, but also create the foundation needed to support their own research and development work using recombinant DNA technology.

With its broad range of topics, Molecular Biotechnology is adaptable to different upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses emphasizing particular aspects of modern biotechnology. Instructors can easily tailor the content to courses focusing on the fundamentals of biotechnology as well as courses dedicated to medical, agricultural, environmental, or industrial applications.
