Key Features

  • An easy-to-use study guide that incorporates the most current, relevant journal articles from Cell Press 

  • Full supplements including text and journal test bank, image gallery and online self quizzing

  • Basic concepts followed by more detailed, specific applications with clear, color illustrations of key topics and concepts


Now available with the most current and relevant journal articles from Cell Press, Biotechnology Academic Cell Update Edition approaches modern biotechnology from a molecular basis, which grew out of the increasing biochemical understanding of physiology. Using straightforward, less-technical jargon, Clark and Pazdernik manage to introduce each chapter with a basic concept that ultimately evolves into a more specific detailed principle. This up-to-date text covers a wide realm of topics, including the forensics used in crime scene investigations, the burgeoning field of nanobiotechnology, bioethics and other cutting edge topics in today’s world of biotechnology.


Researchers and upper-division undergraduate students in Microbiology, Physiology, Biology, Pharmacology, Biotechnology, Zoology, Plant Biology, Biochemistry and Agriculture in biotechnology, bioinformatics
