The essential concepts in biology relevant to the understanding of gene cloning are presented in an accessible manner. The book begins by outlining the basic principles of biology and aspects of genetics relevant to the concepts of gene cloning. The next section explores the common techniques and approaches used in gene cloning. The author then discusses various applications in agriculture and food, and in medicine and related areas. The practical uses of gene cloning are illustrated, with specific examples from the literature to demonstrate how gene cloning is conducted utilizing the concepts developed in previous sections. Review questions at the end of each chapter provide self-testing, allowing the reader to assess their understanding of the materials. This book should be of interest to researchers, academics, graduate students in food science, agriculture, nutrition, biology, microbiology, genetics, zoology, cell biology, plant biology, neuroscience, aquaculture and fisheries, and entomology.
