The book covers the fundamental principles and concepts in biotechnology which form the basis for the subject and illustrates their applications in selected areas such as health care, agriculture, animal systems, bioprocess technologies and environmental aspects. This textbook is the outcome of a COSTED-IBN project on curriculum development in biotechnology for undergraduate study. It is designed to provide a strong base in this emerging, interdisciplinary are which holds great promise for economic development.
