Genetic engineering involves the direct manipulation of genes. It is common tool in both research and agriculture. Areas of research include medical engineering to produce vaccines against disease, pharmaceutical development, and the treatment of disease. In agriculture, genetic engineering is used to modify crops and domestic animals to increase their yields, ease of production, and nutrition.

This important book presents a collection of new research and studies covering advances in microbiology dealing with medicine, agriculture, and more.
