Description: Pharmaceutical biotechnology is evolving as an increasingly vital tool in the field of life sciences by contributing to diagnostic medical tests, therapeutic drugs and gene therapy for hereditary diseases. Pharmaceutical biotechnology tools such as recombinant proteins and transgenic organisms have revolutionized life sciences. This book aims to explain the basics and applications of the subject to the newly inducted minds in the field of pharmaceutical biotechnology. Therefore this book is presented in the form of queries to expound the concepts and elaborately uses illustrations to elucidate. The authors collectively and individually have wide teaching experience at graduate and post-graduate levels. Therefore, they are conversant with the frequent doubts in the curious minds of the young students, which they seek to resolve in this book. The authors have to their credit several published research papers in reputed national and international journals and research- presentations at various national and international conferences.
