Advances in Biotechnology
Advances in Biotechnology by Neelu Nawani
Biotechnology relates innovations to basic sciences and leads to development of technologies for the benefit of mankind. Past few years have witnessed a good response to Biotechnology in terms of student strength, government support, public-private partnerships and faculty research. Success examples of commercialization of biotechnology related products and processes are leading researchers towards technopreneur programs whole heartedly supported by all countries
