About the Book

Molecular Biotechnology: Principles and Practices is intended as a textbook aimed at providing undergraduate and postgraduate students with a strong base in this emerging and highly promising interdisciplinary science. It strikes a balance between two important aspects of the science – the theory of molecular biology and the experimental approach to the study of biological processes. The main feature of this book is that it covers a wide range of molecular techniques in biotechnology and is designed to be a student- and teacher-friendly textbook. Each technique is described conceptually, followed by a detailed experimental account of the steps involved. The book can also serve as reference to the interested reader who is venturing into the field of biotechnology for the first time.

Special Features
-Provides comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of key concepts in biotechnology
- Logical format used to provide easy access to the information
- Clear and well-labelled figures
- Extensive cross–referencing between chapters

Channarayappa received his B.Sc. (Ag.), M.Sc. (Ag.), and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Agricultural Sciences, Bangalore. He then went on to earn a second Ph.D., in Genetics and Developmental Biology from West Virginia University, USA, in 1990. He worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow and Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston. He was the recipient of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Award for Outstanding Post-graduate Agricultural Research (1993) for significant research contribution in genetics and plant breeding, awarded by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, New Delhi. He has been teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate students of molecular biology and biotechnology courses for more than 20 years. He is the author of many scientific papers resulting from research conducted in plant sciences, mutation research, and cancer biology.
