Physics and Chemistry Basis of Biotechnologyby Marcel De Cuyper
Synopses & Reviews
The recent advances in the field of Biotechnology cannot simply be ascribed to one scientific discipline. Rather, scientists from various backgrounds, ranging from fundamental physics and chemistry to the (bio) applied sciences, have joined their efforts in order to make this new era of "high-tech" biotechnology possible. In the present volume of "Focus on Biotechnology", a selected group of distinguished experts describe how their field succeeded in developing the new frontiers of biotechnology. The physical or chemical underlying principles form the core of each chapter, which ends with a sketch of anticipated developments during the next decade. Audience: Any self-respecting scientist who aims to implement his work within the framework of practical applications will find "Focus on Biotechnology - Physics and Chemistry basis Biotechnology" a must-have volume.
Book News Annotation:
This volume contains a selection of presentations from the 9th European Congress on Biotechnology, held in Brussels in July 1999 and attended by scientists from various backgrounds. Specialists from Europe and the U.S. describe how their fields succeeded in developing the new frontiers of biotechnology. Coverage includes biomimetic materials synthesis; chemical principles and biotechnology applications of dendrimers; rational design of P450 enzymes for biotechnology; amperometric enzyme-based biosensors for application in the food and beverage industry; supported lipid membranes for reconstitution of membrane proteins; the functional structure of the secretin receptor; cold-adapted enzymes; molecular and cellular magnetic resonance contrast agents; radioactive microspheres for medical applications; physical, chemical and biological aspects of radiation-induced bioradicals; technologies and research in radiation-induced bioradicals; and recent developments in isolation and characterization of aroma measurement.
