Applied Molecular Biotechnology: The Next Generation of Genetic Engineering explains state-of-the-art advances in the rapidly developing area of molecular biotechnology, the technology of the new millennium. Comprised of chapters authored by leading experts in their respective fields, this authoritative reference text:

  • Highlights the latest omics-based tools and approaches used in modern biotechnology
  • Explains how various molecular biology technologies can be used to develop transgenic plants and how those plants can meet growing food and plant-derived product demands
  • Discusses chloroplast gene expression systems, mitochondrial omics, plant functional genomics, and whole-genome resequencing for crop improvement
  • Explores plant–microbe and plant–insect interactions affecting plant protection and productivity
  • Covers animal models, pharmacogenomics, human tissue banking, and the molecular diagnosis of diseases such as cervical cancer, obesity, and diabetes
  • Examines the molecular aspects of viral diseases, production of industrial commodities using viral biotechnology, and biotechnological uses of magnetic nanoparticles
  • Describes the use of biotechnology in the food, chemical, pharmaceutical, environmental conservation, and renewable energy sectors

Applied Molecular Biotechnology: The Next Generation of Genetic Engineering serves as a springboard for new discoveries in molecular biology and its applications. Thus, this book is an invaluable resource for students and researchers of molecular biotechnology.

About the Author:

Muhammad Sarwar Khan is a highly regarded molecular biologist who has made colossal contributions in the field of chloroplast genetic engineering, and is a pioneer in expressing oxygen-loving green fluorescent protein from jellyfish in chloroplasts―plant organelles with reduced environments. He also pioneered plastid transformation in rice and sugarcane, recalcitrant plant species. Dr. Khan has developed borer-resistant transgenic sugarcane plants with no toxin residues in the juice. Dr. Khan has supervised more than 100 students at the master’s and PhD levels. His current research involves edible-marker-carrying transgenics, cost-effective therapeutics, edible vaccines, and plantomics. Dr. Khan is presently director of the Center of Agricultural Biochemistry and Biotechnology at the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, Pakistan.

Iqrar Ahmad Khan has had a long career in education and agriculture. He has established or cofounded centers for the study of agriculture and food security throughout the world, released a potato variety (PARS-70), pioneered research on breeding seedless Kinnow, discovered new botanical varieties of wheat, and initiated a program to cure witches’-broom disease of lime in Oman. Dr. Khan is currently leading international projects to combat citrus greening disease and mango sudden death. He has been instrumental in helping UAF to achieve top ranks within the national, QS, and NTU systems.

Debmalya Barh is a biotechnologist with decades of experience in integrative omics applied to translational research, and is the founder of the Institute of Integrative Omics and Applied Biotechnology, Nonakuri, India. Dr. Barh has authored more than 150 publications, edited several globally published omics-related reference books, and served as a reviewer for many prestigious international journals. As a result of his significant contributions in promoting research and development using unique strategies throughout the world, he was recognized by Who’s Who in the World in 2010 and entered in the Limca Book of Records―the Indian equivalent to the Guinness Book of World Records―in 2014.

Review:

"... timely and very much needed. ... a comprehensive ... [book] covering all important aspects of the technology."
―From the Foreword by Dr. Kauser Abdulla Malik, HI, SI, TI, Distinguished National Professor, Dean for Postgraduate Studies, Forman Christian College (A Chartered University), Lahore, Pakistan

"This book is certainly a very valuable guide for any safety manager intending to build and maintain an effective safety activity. The focus on human factors is on the most relevant aspects as much as the need to define the most valuable ways to perform a retrospective analysis of occurrences.

The implementation of a Safety Management System is the essential instrument on which safety processes and company operations are based. The correct approach to dealing with human factors and in particular to analyzing the contribution pf human errors to incident causation is a crucial pillar, but not the only one, on which the entire foundation of organizational safety is based. This book offers a valuable support in ensuring this is achieved."
Cogn Tech Work, 2016
