About this title


Des Nicholl presents a new, fully revised, and expanded edition of his popular undergraduate-level textbook. The book retains many of the features of the original edition and still offers a concise technical introduction to the subject of genetic engineering. It is divided into three main sections: basic molecular biology, methods of gene manipulation, and modern applications of genetic engineering. Applications covered in the book include genomics, protein engineering, gene therapy, cloning, transgenic animals and plants, and bioethics. An Introduction to Genetic Engineering is essential reading for undergraduate students of biotechnology, genetics, molecular biology, and biochemistry.

Book Description:

Genetic engineering is a subject taught at the undergraduate level to almost all students of the biological sciences. This expanded, second edition still offers a concise and affordable technical introduction to the subject, but now covers all of the major modern applications of gene technology, from cloning to the creation of genetically modified animals and plants. The ethical questions surrounding genetic engineering are also discussed. This book is essential reading for students taking courses in biotechnology, genetics, molecular biology, and biochemistry.
