About this title

Synopsis:

Welcome to BioTech Nation is a fast-paced account of Gunn's accidental plunge into the "biotech rabbit hole." Combining a first-person chronicle of the jittery beginnings of the weekly radio segment BioTech Nation with her trademark entertaining and penetrating reporting, Gunn uncovers the inner workings of a little-understood industry in the midst of explosive growth and with far-reaching impact. You'll learn about some of the exciting developments happening in biotech today - viruses that kill tumor cells, enzymes that produce cost-effective ethanol - along with behind-the-scenes portraits of the driven, arrogant, and visionary movers and shakers of this global industry.

Book Description:

Library Journal's Best Business Books for 2007

As host of public radio’s Tech Nation, Dr. Moira Gunn has long been known for making all aspects of science and technology meaningful to the general listening public. But when she spontaneously decided at a cocktail-fueled biotech industry event that she would be launching a weekly segment on biotech -- a subject that existed well outside of her normal comfort zone -- she had her work cut out for her. For the millions of people who now listen to BioTech Nation, the rest is history.

Going behind the science and business of biotech, the book rides along with Dr. Gunn as she interviews an interesting and colorful cast of characters from the industry, including a DNA scientist with ego to burn and a pharmaceutical exec with a penchant for Viagra. Filled with compelling stories of everything from the genetically modified food fight to the reasons why the presidential stem lines are dying, the book explores the fascinating theories and breakthroughs in this exciting field.

Funny, entertaining, and informative, Welcome to BioTech Nation is a unique, inside look at biotechnology today...and a glimpse at what could be in store for us tomorrow.
