This  new 2-volume set explores new research and perspectives in genetic  engineering, which enables the precise control of the genetic  composition and gene expression of organism. This powerful technology  can be used for environmental sustainability, food and nutritional  security, medicinal advancement, and more. Genetic Engineering aims to  provide a deep understanding of the many aspects of this emerging  technology and its diverse applications.

Genetic  Engineering, Volume 1: Principles, Mechanism, and Expression covers  genetic engineering concepts, molecular tools, and technologies utilized  in the manipulation, amplification, and introgression of DNA. The  volume explains the concepts of genetic engineering, enzymes of genetic  engineering, and tools used in genetic engineering. It provides an  introduction of recombinant DNA into host cells and discusses the  linking of desired gene with DNA vector/gene cloning vector, polymerase  chain reactions, the concept and nature of genes, blotting techniques,  chromosome jumping, electrophoresis, genetically engineered  microorganisms, and molecular markers and their applications.

Genetic  Engineering, Volume 2: Applications, Bioethics, and Biosafety expresses  the various appreciation and challenges of genetic engineering and  issues related to bioethics and biosafety. Chapters cover the legal  issues of genetic engineering, including intellectual property rights  (IPR) and protection (IPP) and the patenting of living organisms,  copyrights, trade secrets, and trademarks. The volume considers the  safety and benefits of genetic engineering in human welfare, such as in  genetically engineered Bt and Bt cotton, along with the biohazards of  recombinant DNA technology. Chapters explain genetically modified  organisms and microorganisms, genetic engineering of horticultural  crops, genetic engineering in the agricultural sciences, and more.

This  2-volume book will be a valuable asset to upper-level students in cell  biology as well as to faculty and researchers involved in genetics,  molecular genetics, biochemistry, biotechnology, botany, zoology and  agriculture sciences.
