The book retains among the features of the unique edition and still offers a concise technical introduction to the topic of genetic engineering. It’s divided into three main sections: basic molecular biology, strategies of gene manipulation, and brand new applications of genetic engineering. Applications covered within the book come with genomics, protein engineering, gene therapy, cloning, transgenic animals and plants, and bioethics. An Introduction to Genetic Engineering is very important reading for undergraduate students of biotechnology, genetics, molecular biology, and biochemistry.
