Biotechnology is a fast developing technology as well as a science that has already made an impact to different aspects of day-to-day human life such as Public Health, Pharmaceuticals, Food and Agriculture, Bioenergetics and Information technology. It is very clear that biotechnology will be a key technology for the 21st century or the science of future. It has the potential to ensure food security, dramatically reduce hunger and malnutrition, and reduce rural poverty particularly in the developing countries like India. Considering its commercial potential and its possible impact on the economy, Government of India has taken a number of measures to build up trained human resource in biotechnology and promote research and development and its commercial aspects in the country.

This textbook covers all the fundamental aspects of Biotechnology. It has been written in a very simple manner explaining the fundamental concepts and techniques in detail so that it will be very easy to understand, even for those who do not have a basic understanding in biology. Reading this textbook will give the learners an idea about the relationship between the subject and health, nutrition, agriculture, environment, industry etc. and will understand different application of biotechnology in everyday life. The book will be very helpful in developing interest in the beginners to study biotechnology as a discipline and pursue higher studies and research in biotechnology and other professional courses in future.
