Description

"…packed with over 400 pages of exceptionally well-organized and cross-referenced terminology, making it an essential reference for anyone working directly or indirectly wit those pioneering the frontiers of modern biology." --AntiCancer Research 26, July 2006 "…essential for the industry worker and the advanced student in one of the many biotechnology fields." --Eleanor Randall for Issues in Science and Technology Librianshiip, Spring 2006 As the fields of biotechnology and nanobiotechnology continue their rapid growth and evolution, non-technical people, such as lobbyists, attorneys, and marketing and public relations professionals must quickly become conversant with a topic that is highly technical. Known in previous editions as the Glossary of Biotechnology Terms, the new title of this edition reflects the addition of nanotechnology terms relevant to biotechnology. The book provides concise definitions of terms, clarifies new terms, and describes how they are used. This lexicon should be compulsory for anyone involved in the biotechnology field or anyone who deals with professionals in biotechnology.

    "…essential for the industry worker and the advanced student in one of the many biotechnology fields."
    --Eleanor Randall for Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, Spring 2006
    "The book will help one keep current with the biotechnology and nanotechnology terminology, communicate successfully with those working on the cutting-edge of modern science and enter interdisciplinary collaborations. This book is recommended to scientists, engineers, attorneys, government workers, lobbyists, venture capitalist, and university transfer staff, especially for personnel with no advance training in biological and chemical sciences to understand concepts and buzzwords that are indispensable to their work."
