About The Book

Biotechnology, an enabling technology, is the growing and most rapidly changing subject which has created a number of new opportunities for the upliftment of human society. It has a broad applications in many diverse aspects of basic research, industry, and commerce. It is a broad field that employs an industrial technology based on the biological synthesis of important chemical compounds, especially proteins (insulin), genetic engineering of plants and animals, and other, related technologies. It also manipulates the genetic information of an organism to allow the characteristics of that organism. The basic process consists of inserting foreign DNA carrying instructions for a valuable enzyme, hormone, or other protein into the DNA of some other organism so that the host organism makes the desired products at the same time as it makes its own proteins. With increasing knowledge of the control of gene activity, as well as new methods to insert genes into eukaryotic cells, it is possible to genetically transform the complex organisms. Genetic information has been especially successful in agriculture, and in beginning at human gene therapy has been made. Some observers feel that biotechnology promises a revolution beyond the scale of that generated by the computer. Certainly, the potential seems unlimited.

About The Author

Dr. Mohan P. Arora is an experienced researcher and an ardent teacher. After taking his master degree from Vikram University, he joined the Mossfern Laboratory at Barlow Ganj, Mussourie as a scientist in 1970, and a year later, he joined Department of Zoology, M.M.H. (Post Graduate) College, Ghaziabad (U.P.) in 1971. He submitted Ph.D. thesis in 1977 under the UGC Teachers Fellowship. He has 34 years teaching experience. Since 1971, he is engaged in furthering his studies on Reproductive Endocrinology (Cytological approach). At present, he is continuing the same department in the capacity of Reader. He has guided several researchers in Avian as well as Reptilian endocrinology. He is a regular member and fellow of several societies and associations. He attended several international symposia. Apart from the present title, he is an author of several books.
