Biotechnology: Demystifying the Concepts
Publisher:Benjamin Cummings Press
This is an interesting book that seems to be written for a freshman level student without any background in biology. It teaches basic biology by using a biotech emphasis. It covers mitosis and meiosis, Mendelian genetics, and central dogma, then gives the applications to biotechnology. It does include a section on business issues in biotechnology and a very interesting section on eugenics. This might be appropriate for a non-majors course in Introduction to Biotechnology that some colleges have included as sort of an orientation course and a recruiting device. It probably doesn't go into enough detail in the subjects to be used for a capstone course.
