About the Book :
Pharmaceutical Biotechnology subject has been included in the syllabus of almost all colleges and universities both at under-graduate and post-graduate levels. This subject is related to development of new strains for pharmaceuticals, fermentation technology, recombinant technology, enzyme immobilization, developments of transgenic plants and animals, and production of new molecules by biotransformation.
This ‘PHARMACEUTICAL BIOTECHNOLOGY book has been written by considering the syllabus prescribed by PHARMACY COUNCIL OF INDIA (PCI). The book is designed for Third Year B. Pharm students (semester-VI). All the chapters in the present book are followed by objective type, short answer, long answer and multiple choice questions as per University examination pattern.
The book is a simple, handy, comprehensive and profusely illustrated digest on Pharmaceutical Biotechnology with special stress on the requirement of undergraduates. The basic principles and techniques of diverse biotechnological fields have been presented. The realization of the need and importance for students promoted me to write new book as per syllabus of PCI semester pattern. It is also hoped that it will serve as a useful resource for teachers of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology.
