About The Book

As we know that current era is the time of biotechnology and especially I would say rDNA Technology. In this context there is a key need to understand the concept of rDNA Technology as such. Keeping in mind the basic need of students, this book is designed. All the chapters are in very simple language. The chapter 1 deals with key DNA manipulating enzymes followed by chapter 2 which deals with the most important part of rDNA and that is vectors. The llabeling of the nucleic acids have been described in chapter 3 followed by chapter 4 and 5 which overall deals with cDNA/genomic libraries, PCR and applications. Sequencing of the nucleic acid has been described in chapter 6. Nevertheless, to gain insight into the applications of rDNA Technology, chapter 7 has been designed. The whole content is simply presented, and orderly arranged. I am fully sure that the students will gain a lot from this book and I encourage them to read and suggest the modifications in the coming time.

About The Author

Dr. Arun Dev Sharma, at present working as HOD / Assistant Professor in the PG Department of Biotechnology at Lyallpur Khalsa College, Jalandhar, Punjab. Dr. Arun Dev Sharma did his M.Sc. and Ph.D Degree of Biotechnology from GNDU, Amritsar. His area of research was plant molecular biology and rDNA Technology in plants related to abiotic stresses. He was selected for Gold Medal based upon his top position among all the students. In 2003, Dr. Sharma joined Department of Biotechnology, Lyallpur Khalsa College, Jalandhar. During this period he has achieved various milestones being as teacher and researcher in the Department. He has guided Three students for M.Phil. Degree and M.Sc. students for their dissertation work. Dr. Sharma has presented various papers in the international conferences, viz: Italy, USA, Poland and China during the last five years. He was selected in the Editorial Board of many International Journals. From the last so many years he has been working on two research projects being sponsored by DST, Govt. of India and UGC, Govt. of India. To his credit he has published about 30 International research papers working on the problems of water scarcity and drought in Punjab on plant productivity of wheat and sorghum crops, etc. For the last four years, two workshops for B.Sc., MSc. and Ph.D. students were organised by him on the latest trends of Biotechnology being sponsored by DBT, Govt. of India and UGC. During this current year his Department has received a grant of 35 lakh being as DST-FIST grant for M.Sc. Biotechnology and 55 lakh as STAR College Grant from DBT to strengthen B.Sc. Biotechnology area.
