Improving lives by solving problems in agriculture and the environment

CABI Biotechnology Series

Biotechnology, in particular the use of transgenic organisms, has a wide range of applications including agriculture, forestry, food and health. There is evidence that it could make a major impact in producing plants and animals that are able to resist stresses and diseases, thereby increasing food security. There is also potential to produce pharmaceuticals in plants through biotechnology, and provide foods that are nutritionally enhanced. Genetically modified organisms can also be used in cleaning up pollution and contamination. However, the application of biotechnology has raised concerns about biosafety, and it is vital to ensure that genetically modified organisms do not pose new risks to the environment or health. To understand the full potential of biotechnology and the issues that relate to it, scientists need access to information that not only provides an overview of and background to the field, but also keeps them up to date with the latest research findings.

This series, which extends the scope of CABI’s successful “Biotechnology in Agriculture” series, addresses all topics relating to biotechnology including transgenic organisms, molecular analysis techniques, molecular pharming, in vitro culture, public opinion, economics, development and biosafety. Aimed at researchers, upper-level students and policy makers, titles in the series provide international coverage of topics related to biotechnology, including both a synthesis of facts and discussions of future research perspectives and possible solutions.
