Biotechnology
Edited by Deniz Ekinci , ISBN 978-953-51-2040-7, 240 pages, Publisher: InTech, Chapters published April 15, 2015 under CC BY 3.0 license
"Over the recent years, biotechnology has become responsible for explaining interactions of biological tools and processes so that many scientists in the life sciences from agronomy to medicine are engaged in biotechnological research. This book contains an overview focusing on the research area of molecular biology, molecular aspects of biotechnology, synthetic biology and agricultural applications in relevant approaches. The book deals with basic issues and some of the recent developments in biotechnological applications. Particular emphasis is devoted to both theoretical and experimental aspect of modern biotechnology. The primary target audience for the book includes students, researchers, biologists, chemists, chemical engineers and professionals who are interested in associated areas. The book is written by international scientists with expertise in chemistry, protein biochemistry, enzymology, molecular biology and genetics, many of which are active in biochemical and biomedical research. We hope that the book will enhance the knowledge of scientists in the complexities of some biotechnological approaches; it will stimulate both professionals and students to dedicate part of their future research in understanding relevant mechanisms and applications."

Innovations in Biotechnology
Edited by Eddy C. Agbo , ISBN 978-953-51-0096-6, 474 pages, Publisher: InTech, Chapters published February 17, 2012 under CC BY 3.0 license
"Innovations in Biotechnology provides an authoritative crystallization of some of the evolving leading-edge biomedical research topics and developments in the field of biotechnology. It is aptly written to integrate emerging basic research topics with their biotechnology applications. It also challenges the reader to appreciate the role of biotechnology in society, addressing clear questions relating to biotech policy and ethics in the context of the research advances. In an era of interdisciplinary collaboration, the book serves an excellent indepth text for a broad range of readers ranging from social scientists to students, researchers and policy makers. Every topic weaves back to the same bottom line: how does this discovery impact society in a positive way?"

 

Biotechnology - Molecular Studies and Novel Applications for Improved Quality of Human Life
Editor Reda Helmy Sammour
ISBN 978-953-51-0151-2
250 pages, March, 2012

"This book deals with the importance of application of molecular biology as an approach of biotechnology for improvement of the quality of human life. One of the interesting topics in this field, is the identification of the organisms that produce bioactive secondary metabolites. It also discusses how to structure a plan for use and preservation of those species that represent a potential source for new drug development, especially those obtained from bacteria."

Advances in Applied Biotechnology
Editor Marian Petre
ISBN 978-953-307-820-5
288 pages, January, 2012

"Biotechnology is the scientific field of studying and applying the most efficient methods and techniques to get useful end-products for the human society by using viable micro-organisms, cells, and tissues of plants or animals, or even certain functional components of their organisms, that are grown in fully controlled conditions to maximize their specific metabolism inside fully automatic bioreactors. It is very important to make the specific difference between biotechnology as a distinct science of getting valuable products from molecules, cells or tissues of viable organisms, and any other applications of bioprocesses that are based on using the whole living plants or animals in different fields of human activities such as bioremediation, environmental protection, organic agriculture, or industrial exploitation of natural resources.

Preparing for Future Products of Biotechnology
Between 1973 and 2016, the ways to manipulate DNA to endow new characteristics in an organism (that is, biotechnology) have advanced, enabling the development of products that were not previously possible. What will the likely future products of biotechnology be over the next 510 years? What scientific capabilities, tools, and/or expertise may be needed by the regulatory agencies to ensure they make efficient and sound evaluations of the likely future products of biotechnology?
