Biotechnology and its Applications

Godbey's Biotechnology and its Applications is written for the student with little to no background in college level biology. The goal of the book is to introduce the student to the world of biotechnology in a way that runs deeper than a mere survey. The book is divided into three units. In the first, basic science is covered to introduce the reader to the cell, how it behaves, and what it is made of. The second unit demonstrates the biotechnological application of scientific principles in the laboratory while the third unit of the book presents biotechnologies "in the real world.” Examples include recombinant proteins that are available to millions of patients, plants that have been engineered to produce food that has been made available to people around the world, and regenerative medicine that may someday allow patients to receive organs that have been grown from their own cells. The second edition has been updated and expanded with the most current information available, and new chapters have been added on such topics as gene editing, bioremediation, vaccines and immunotherapy, and processing and manufacturing, resulting in a modern, robust, yet highly readable applications-oriented introduction to biotechnology. Takes an integrated approach from first principles, integrating cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, and health science, starting at the basic science level and building to biotechnological applications Presents side topics of interest throughout ("gee whiz” topics), to give students quick mental breaks while still extending their knowledge in a practical sense Contains a greatly improved, robust teaching pedagogy to aid student learning, featuring new chapter learning objectives, chapter summaries, highlighted key terms, more end-of-chapter questions, and a new glossary

Environmental change is affecting the world's agricultural productivity. This is coupled with an increase in population: according to the United Nations Department for Economic and Social Affairs, the global population is estimated to reach 9.7 billion by 2050. Therefore, the current situation requires that we develop climate-smart technologies to improve crop productivity to sustain the ever-rising global population. Current-day farmers are introducing a considerable amount of agrochemicals to enhance crop productivity. Indiscriminate agrochemical application has altered not only the soil's physic-chemical and
