About the book
CONTEMPORARY BIOTECHNOLOGY AND BIOENGINEERING, divided into 13 chapters, discusses the basic concepts and principles of contemporary bioengineering, gene and genome, genetic engineering, cells and cell engineering, enzyme and enzyme engineering, microorganism and fermentation engineering, contemporary bioengineering technologies and agriculture, light chemical industry, biological materials, biological medicine, biodiversity and environmental management.
The book emphasis on both basic knowledge and frontier findings, and it is written not only for readers to understand contemporary bioengineering itself but also for those students with non-bioengineering specialty to find the connection between bioengineering and their own specialty.
