About this product
- DescriptionThe latest advances in state-of-the art development in the rapidly evolving area of Molecular Biotechlogy, the techlogy of the new millennium, are detailed in this book. Descriptions of the cutting edge science of engineering genes and relocating them in other organisms demonstrate the processes necessary to produce useful, desirable products. The book provides breadth of coverage, taking into account omics, molecular biology, molecular genetics, molecular pathology, microbiology, natechlogy, and their biotechlogical applications in the areas of agriculture, health, and industry.
- Author BiographyMuhammad Sarwar Khan is a highly regarded molecular biologist who has made colossal contributions in the field of chloroplast genetic engineering, and is a pioneer in expressing oxygen-loving green fluorescent protein from jellyfish in chloroplasts-plant organelles with reduced environments. He also pioneered plastid transformation in rice and sugarcane, recalcitrant plant species. Dr. Khan has developed borer-resistant transgenic sugarcane plants with no toxin residues in the juice. Dr. Khan has supervised more than 100 students at the master's and PhD levels. His current research involves edible-marker-carrying transgenics, cost-effective therapeutics, edible vaccines, and plantomics. Dr. Khan is presently director of the Center of Agricultural Biochemistry and Biotechnology at the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, Pakistan. Iqrar Ahmad Khan has had a long career in education and agriculture. He has established or cofounded centers for the study of agriculture and food security throughout the world, released a potato variety (PARS-70), pioneered research on breeding seedless Kinnow, discovered new botanical varieties of wheat, and initiated a program to cure witches'-broom disease of lime in Oman. Dr. Khan is currently leading international projects to combat citrus greening disease and mango sudden death. He has been instrumental in helping UAF to achieve top ranks within the national, QS, and NTU systems. Debmalya Barh is a biotechnologist with decades of experience in integrative omics applied to translational research, and is the founder of the Institute of Integrative Omics and Applied Biotechnology, Nonakuri, India. Dr. Barh has authored more than 150 publications, edited several globally published omics-related reference books, and served as a reviewer for many prestigious international journals. As a result of his significant contributions in promoting research and development using unique strategies throughout the world, he was recognized by Who's Who in the World in 2010 and entered in the Limca Book of Records-the Indian equivalent to the Guinness Book of World Records-in 2014.
