This is the third volume in a series of biotechnology reviews published every 12 to 18 months. The abundance of rapidly changing technologies has created a need for responsive and comprehensive overviews; this book both illustrates highlights and interprets key developments which will interest both industrial and academic readers. All different areas of biotechnology are considered. In this volume, three main areas are treated: fundamentals of biotechnology, protocols, and resource and research information. The first section focuses on basic biotechnological processes, and will be of particular interest to chemical engineers, microbiologists, applied biochemists and genetic engineers. The section on protocols provides an introduction to some apparatus-based laboratory techniques, as well as new "recipes" for such processes as enzyme isolation. The last section presents new information regarding research programs, company profiles, industry standards and regulations, and data base resources. The FOCUS series aims to acquaint a diversity of biotechnologists not only with current advances within their own disciplines, but to also broaden biotechnological perspectives across the field. Authoritative contributors provide up-to-date summaries and reviews of emerging technologies and research.Finn, Robert K. is the author of 'Biotechnology Focus Three : Fundamentals - Applications - Information', published 1992 under ISBN 9780195209310 and ISBN 0195209311.
