Description

A comprehensive treatise on new developments in biotechnology, the authors of Biotechnology and Safety Assessment, 3e, bring readers an up-to-date review of food safety issues, pre-clinical safety and development of new foods and drugs, plant biotechnology, food allergies and safety assessment, and consumer benefits with regard to genetically modified food.

Tomorrow's foods will be obtained from genetically modified crops, offering consumers higher nutritional value and more of it. Our medications will be obtained through a variety of biotechnological procedures yielding more potent and specific medications for diseases and vaccines. In order to make this view of the future come to light, John A. Thomas and Roy L. Fuchs have updated their classic in order to keep readers one step ahead.

Written by internationally recognized molecular biologists, plant agronomists, microbiologists, toxicologists, nutritionists, and regulatory authorities, this third edition is an excellent and authoritative resource, making it a valuable resource to any biomedical library or scientific bookshelf.

Readership

Toxicologists, phamacologists, regulatory agency professionals, environmental scientists, and agricultural scientists.

Quotes and reviews

"This book is a valuable update for those wishing to keep abreast of the potential of food biotechnology and also to construct safety evaluation and assurance programs for the derived food products."
-TRENDS IN FOOD SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY (May 2003)
"The book is a treasure trove of useful information...Thomas and Fuchs provide a useful, fact-filled handbook of biotechnology biosafety data. ...If you have only one source of biosafety data, this is for you."
—NATURE BIOTECHNOLOGY (October 2002)
"...should be of interest to toxicologists, pharmacologists, nutritionists, and those responsible for assessing risk/benefits, environmental impact and safety of GM products."
