Molecular Biotechnology- Second Edition
Publisher:Blackwell Scientific Publications
ISBN 0-632-03053 (for the paperback) - $50
Molecular Biotechnology is written using clear language and written at the appropriate level, although parts of it will probably (appropriately) challenge lower division students. This book covers the history of the field well, covers recombinant DNA well, and has an excellent section on cell culture and fermentation, and on the production of monoclonal antibodies. It has major holes - especially in recovery and downstream processes - which it basically ignores. Jim tried to use this as a text in 1998, but the publisher couldn't supply it in sufficient numbers. It's beginning to be difficult to find.
