Biotechnology is becoming such a highly prolific area of study and research, even non-technical people, such as lobbyists, attorneys, marketing, and public relations people, have to quickly become conversant about a topic that is highly technical. In addition, various specialists working in the field of biotechnology, including chemists, geneticists, and biologists, occasionally have difficulty in understanding the terms utilized by each other in their respective specialities. It is, therefore, necessary to have a book to which you can refer so everyone can clearly discuss the topics in biotechnology. This book provides concise definitions of terms for persons unfamiliar with biotechnology, and clarifies new terms and how they are being used for those who are already somewhat conversant in the area. Modern Dictionary of Biotechnology is a handy reference for students and people with little or no training in the biological and chemical sciences. It serves to bring you up-to-date biotechnology terminology to provide for more effective study of the subject.
