Book Description :

MATLAB® in bioscience and biotechnology presents an introductory Matlab course oriented towards various collaborative areas of biotechnology and bioscience. It concentrates on Matlab fundamentals and gives examples of its application to a wide range of current bioengineering problems in computational biology, molecular biology, bio-kinetics, biomedicine, bioinformatics, and biotechnology. In the last decade Matlab has been presented to students as the first computer program they learn. Consequently, many non-programmer students, engineers and scientists have come to regard it as user-friendly and highly convenient in solving their specific problems. Numerous books are available on programming in Matlab for engineers in general, irrespective of their specialization, or for those specializing in some specific area, but none have been designed especially for such a wide, interdisciplinary, and topical area as bioengineering. Thus, in this book, Matlab is presented with examples and applications to various school-level and advanced bioengineering problems - from growing populations of microorganisms and population dynamics, reaction kinetics and reagent concentrations, predator-prey models, mass-transfer and flow problems, to sequence analysis and sequence statistics. This is the first book intended as a manual introducing biologists and other biotechnology engineers to work with Matlab It is suitable for beginners and inexperienced users; however, applications of Matlab to advanced problems such as the Monte Carlo method, curve fitting, and reliable machine diagnostics make the book relevant to university teachers as well The book is different in that it assumes a modest mathematical background for the reader and introduces the mathematical or technical concepts with a somewhat traditional approach; Matlab is then used as a tool for subsequent computer solution

Book Description :

Biotechnology is a field of applied biology that involves the use of living organisms and bioprocesses in engineering, technology, medicine and other fields requiring bio products. Biotechnology also utilizes these products for manufacturing purpose. Modern use of similar terms includes genetic engineering as well as cell and tissue culture technologies. Biotechnology draws on the pure biological sciences and in many instances is also dependent on knowledge and methods from outside the sphere of biology. Conversely, modern biological sciences are intimately entwined and dependent on the methods developed through biotechnology and what is commonly thought of as the life sciences industry. It has a major application in modern brewing technology which includes the production of whisky, traditional fermented soybean foods bacterial biomass, cheese starters, cheese technology, L glutamic acid fermentation etc. Biotechnology and cell molecular biology have developed and emerged in to a major discipline during last two decades. Biotechnology is also used to recycle, treat waste, microbial treatment and utilization a waste. The growing global demand for biotechnology products, India has rich biodiversity that drives its clinical trials industry and forms a strong base for pharmaceutical research. In recent years, the worldwide biotechnology based products market has grown at an annual average rate of 15%. This book majorly deals with introduction to basic biotechnology, downstream processing in biotechnology, modern brewing technology, industrial chemicals, biochemical and fuels, microbial flavours and fragrances, biodegradation of non cellulosic wastes for environmental conservation and fuel production, landfills for treatment of solid wastes etc. This book also consists of addresses of machinery suppliers, addresses of chemical suppliers, list of universities, conducting Biotechnology courses in the directory section. This is a unique book, concise, up to date resource offering an innovative, adoptive and valuable presentation of the subject.

Book Description :

This book provides an interdisciplinary and comprehensible introduction to bioeconomy. It thus provides basic knowledge for understanding a transformation process that will shape the 21st century and requires the integration of many disciplines and industries that have had little to do with each other up to now. We are talking about the gradual and necessary transition from the age of fossil fuels, which began around 200 years ago, to a global economy based on renewable raw materials (and renewable energies). The success of this transition is key to coping with the challenge of climate change. This book conceives the realization of bioeconomy as a threefold task – a scientific, an economic and an ecological one. · Where does the biomass come from that we need primarily for feeding the growing world population but also for future energy and material use? How can it be processed in biorefineries and what role does biotechnology play in this regard? · Which aspects of innovation economics need to be considered, which economic aspects of value creation, competitiveness and customer acceptance are important? · What conditions must a bioeconomy fulfil in order to enable a sustainable development of life on earth? May it be regarded as a key to further economic growth or shouldn’t it rather orient itself towards the ideal of sufficiency? By dealing with these questions from the not necessarily consistent perspectives of proven experts, this book provides an interdisciplinary overview of a dynamic field of research and practice that raises more questions than answers and thus may nurture the motivation of many more people to seriously engage for the realization of a bioeconomy.

Market_Desc: A bible of Biotechnology that provides a comprehensive and in-depth knowledge of all core concepts of Biotechnology. A book that caters to the need of beginners as well as the professionals. Special Features: · The first three editions were received extremely well.· The book has been authored by as many as 39 well-known professors from leading institutes and universities.· Conforms to the recommendations of the expert committees who had developed the curriculum for Biotechnology.· A very well illustrated book.· The format of the book has also been modified in conformity with latest international quality process for illustrations and e-publishing.Revision in the Fourth Edition:Significant advances have taken place in certain areas since the publication of the third edition, and the students ought to be informed about these advances. Hence, another revision of some of the chapters has become necessary. The chapters that have been revised in this fourth edition of the Textbook of Biotechnology are · Chapter 1 Biomolecules· Chapter 6 Metabolic Pathways and Their Regulation· Chapter 10 Medical Microbiology· Chapter 13 Molecular Biology· Chapter 14 Genetic Engineering· Chapter 15 Plant Biotechnology· Chapter 16 Genomics and Functional Genomics· Chapter 17 Bioprocess Engineering and Technology· Chapter 22 Intellectual Property Rights in Biotechnology About The Book: It was felt by several teachers and the editor as well, that the sequence of the chapters in the book did not reflect the sequence in which a student ought to study the various areas to fully appreciate the different aspects of Biotechnology. Hence, the sequence of the chapters in the book was kept exactly as the sequence in which the expert committees had arranged the topics in the recommended Biotechnology curriculum. More teachers have commented on this matter since the publication of the second edition. In the third edition of the book, this anomalous practice has been discontinued and the sequence of chapters has been revised. In this edition significant revision has been carried out in the chapters on Medical Microbiology, Biophysical Chemistry, and Genomics and Functional Genomics.

Book Description :

Patents are ubiquitous in contemporary life. Practically everything we use incorporates one or more patented inventions, and recent years have witnessed epic disputes over such matters as the patenting of human genes, the control of smartphone design and technology, the marketing of patented drugs, and the conduct of "patent trolls" accused of generating revenue from nuisance litigation. But what exactly is a patent? Why do governments grant them? Can patents simultaneously encourage new invention, while limiting monopoly and other abuses? In Patent Wars, Thomas Cotter, one of America's leading patent law scholars, offers an accessible, lively, and up-to-date examination of the current state of patent law, showing how patents affect everything from the food we eat to the cars we drive to the devices that entertain and inform us. Beginning with a general overview of patent law and litigation, the book addresses such issues as the patentability of genes, medical procedures, software, and business methods; the impact of drug patents and international treaties on the price of health care; trolls; and the smartphone wars. Taking into account both the benefits and costs that patents impose on society, Cotter highlights the key issues in current debates and explores what still remains unknown about the effect of patents on innovation. An essential one-volume analysis of the topic, Patent Wars explains why patent laws exist in the first place and how we can make the system better.
