This textbook is aimed at medical and other health science students to explain the practical clinical impact of new techniques in biotechnology. It does not set out to explain the minutiae of the techniques themselves. The book focuses on why these techniques are useful in a clinical context and considers their potential uses, limitations and the ethical considerations that surround their use.

"Biotechnology embraces cell biology, genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, microbiology, pharmacology, immunology and ethics, to name only some specialties. These days their practical applications range from drugs and vaccines to stem cells and gene therapy. In the authors’ hands descriptions of the science of all of these cannot fail to excite, so much so that lay people interested in modern advances could benefit."
