Glossary of Biotechnology and Agrobiotechnology Terms, Fifth Edition by The 5th edition of Glossary of Biotechnology and Agrobiotechnology Terms will be a significant expansion of the previous 4th edition. In the past decade, many new terms have been introduced due to the appearance and application of new crop plant breeding methods as well as technical advances in genetics, molecular biology, cell biology and agricultural research. The terms associated with important new technologies have been added to this new edition including terms related to Zinc Finger Proteins, Transcription Activator-Like Effectors (TALEs), TALE Nucleases, Genome Editing, CRISPR/Cas 9 Gene-editing Systems, Oligonucleortide-mediated Mutagenesis, and RNA Interference, as well as hundreds of others. The 5th edition, like previous editions, will be useful for regulators of agricultural biotechnology around the world, customers, biotech patent officials, venture capitalists, and agbiotech company executives, as well as biopharmaceutical industries and academics.

Modern Biotechnology by Biotechnology is a fascinating interdisciplinary field uniquely poised to take on some of the world's most complex problems. With this thesis at its core, Modern Biotechnology: Defining and Solving Human Problems takes a refreshing problems-based approach to exploring the field. Novice readers will come away with a broad appreciation for the significance of current and emerging biotechnologies-from regenerative medicine, to genetically enhanced crops, to biofuels. Experts will benefit from the concise review of timely game-changing technologies such as DNA sequence-by-synthesis and clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats/CRISPR-associated protein-9 nuclease-mediated genome editing technologies. Despite being set within a conceptual framework of "wicked" problems (i.e., disease, food production, environmental spoilage), insights into the current state and future potential of biotechnologies make this book both optimistic and forward thinking. This is not just an informative text-it's a jumping off point for engaging with a discipline that has the potential to change the world.

Advances in Microbial Biotechnology by Over the last few decades, the rapid and vast development of advanced microbial bioresources and metagenomics techniques has completely transformed the field of microbial biotechnology. Our understanding of microbial diversity, evolutionary biology, and microbial interaction with their animal and plant hosts at molecular level has been revolutionized with an abundance of new research. This new volume, Advances in Microbial Biotechnology: Current Trends and Future Prospect, focuses on the application of microorganisms for several purposes: for plant protection and improvement, for environmental remediation purposes, and for the improvement of human health. Various applications of microorganisms are covered broadly and have been appropriately reflected in depth in different chapters. The book is divided into four major sections: applied microbiology in agriculture microbes in the environment microbes in human health microbes in nanotechnology The book provides insight into the diverse microorganisms that have been explored and exploited in the development of various applications for agricultural improvements. The book also looks at the application of microbes for the removal of pollutants and the recovery of metals and oils. Also discussed is the detection and exploitation of microorganisms in the diagnosis of human diseases, providing possible holistic approaches to health. This new volume will provide a wealth of information on new research on the application of microbial biotechnology today.
