Genetic Engineering: Recent Developments in Applications

Hardback
This title includes a number of Open Access chapters. A common tool in both research and agriculture, genetic engineering involves the direct manipulation of genes. Today's areas of medical research include genetic engineering to produce vaccines against disease, pharmaceutical development, and the treatment of disease. In agriculture, genetic engineering is used to modify crops and domestic animals to increase their yields, aid in production, and enhance nutritive aspects. This important book covers new research and studies in genetic engineering in the areas of medicine and agriculture.
