About The Book

This is an exciting time to be a biologist, our knowledge of living system is expanding rapidly and our technologies for research improve daily. The present title concentrates on knowledge that an educated person requires for understanding the excitement of modern biology by finding new ways to make important concepts more understandable and memorable.

The present title "Genetic Engineering" which is basically the science manipulating genes has been carefully organized for the purpose. The development of techniques for manipulating genes is based on an understanding of the molecular aspects of genetic processes occurring in nature. Genetic engineering enable us to transcend conventional biological boundaries to create completely novel gene combinations and even new `designer` genes. The aim of this text is to provide readers with thorough understanding of the techniques, which underpin these will be able to apply the techniques of gene manipulation to tackle specific problems or to achieve desired objectives in a wide variety of fields.

Genetic engineering gives a concise presentation of the main aspects of transferring genes of animals and plants in the light of the latest ideas and current researchers. It is characterized by the rapidly growing complexity and a bewildering diversity of facts, data, aspects examples and findings. Efforts have been made of acquaint the reader with the current status of the various hypotheses, theories, principles, concepts and rules of genetic engineering with illustrative examples from animals and plants.

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.
