SKU: 84147c60f357 Category:

Biotechnology is one of the most interesting domain of science. This includes use of biological tools for human welfare. Actually biotechnology is the combination of different aspects of life science like Biochemistry, Molecular biology, Genetic engineering, Immunology etc. As this area is too broad, the carrier scope in this field is also vary broad. A biotechnologist can work in different areas like medical science, pharmacy field, research and academics. For the development of this field Department of Biotechnology (DBT) is launching so many broad projects.

To get a bright carrier and to achieve a good position in this field student have to face competitive examinations like CSIR- NET, SET, GATE, JNU, AIIMS, JAM, ICAR, ICMA etc. All thesr exams are basically objective type and basic concepts of life science subjects as mentioned above. This book includes the basic concepts of all the important topics of biotechnology entrance and for Phd entrance. Also this book contains miscellaneous questions collection for student practice or for revision of basic concepts. This book is helpful for the student of different stream of life science who wants to qualify JNU, CSIR NET or other competitive examination. This book is also helpful for those students who wants a brief notes on different topics of biotechnology for preparation of university examination.
