Genetic Engineering
Book Summary:

Genetic Engineering is a sub-discipline of biotechnology. According to Prof. Kannan (2003) in Genetic Engineering, one adds, substracts, multiplies, or divides a gene, which in turn, changes the levels of a protein which may in turn changes the levels of carbohydrates and lipids. A classical biotechnologist first used nature’s biofactories (cells) to make products such as curd, ethanol, penicillin, insulin, etc. Modern biotechnology on the contrary is making cells, doing jobs which they have never done before. An instance being bacteria producing human insulin (the humulin).

Key Features:

The main features of the book are as follows:

1. A classical biotechnologist first used nature’s biofactories (cells) to make products such as curd, ethanol, penicillin, insulin, etc. Modern biotechnology on the contrary is making cells, doing jobs which they have never done before.

2. It will also serve the purpose of the students of B.Sc. (Hons.), M.Sc. Zoology, Botany, Microbiology and Biotechnology. Students preparing for Medical entrance exams, I.F.S., P.C.S. and I.A.S., etc. would also be benefited by this book.
