About the book
BIOPROSPECTING IN LIFE SCIENCES is exploration of our natural resources through modern technological intervention. Living organisms are most fascinating creation of nature. Human being occupies the central position among all. They can make use of both the biotic and abiotic resources maintain ecological balance between the environment and the biotic community. ‘Bioprospecting’ is emerging as a new scientific discipline linked to modern Biotechnology.
This edited volume is an excellent collection of scientific articles from persons of high scientific stature especially in the fields of modern biological sciences. The book will definitely help the students, researchers and teachers for their scientific endeavor.
• Selected 24 articles contributed by 63 eminent personalities of high repute from various institutions
all over the country.
