This text has been rewritten to encompass new topics on the syllabus, such as vaccines and genetic engineering. It combines biotechnology, microbiology, pathology and immunity and is a comprehensive text for those studying the Microbes and Biotechnology module as part of their A level Biology course. As well as updating the text, the author has added extra features which are designed to take students step-by-step through a number of biotechnology practical experiments. Important features are highlighted in red, and a section is included on Internet resources which enables students to use their computers for further research into areas covered. Also featured is a section on biological suppliers, so that teachers can order apparatus required for practical sessions.
