Recently, biotechnology has been introduced in syllabi of most of the universities, at the under graduate and/or postgraduate level(s), either as a separate paper or a part of it. The author has been teaching biotechnology for the last two years and realises the problems of students. Therefore, this book is compiled to provide the students, the current informations on different areas of biotechnology.
Due to expanding horizon of biotechnology, it was difficult to accommodate the current information of biotechnology in detail. Therefore, a separate book entitled Advanced Biotechnology has been written for the Postgraduate students of Indian University and Colleges. Therefore, the present form of A Textbook of Biotechnology is totally useful for undergraduate students. A separate section of Probiotics has been added in Chapter 18.
Chapter 27 on Experiments on Biotechnology has been deleted from the book because most of the experiments have been written in ';Practical Microbiology' by R.C. Dubey and D.K. Maheshwari. Bibliography has been added to help the students for further consultation of resource materials.
This edition will be useful for all University/College students where biotechnology is being taught at Undergraduate levels. It will also be useful to all those students who are preparing for civil and various competitive examinations.[For University and College Students in India and Abroad]
