This new 2-volume set explores new research and perspectives in genetic engineering, which enables the precise control of the genetic composition and gene expression of organism. This powerful technology can be used for environmental sustainability, food and nutritional security, medicinal advancement, and more. Genetic Engineering aims to provide a deep understanding of the many aspects of this emerging technology and its diverse applications.

Genetic Engineering, Volume 1: Principles, Mechanism, and Expression covers genetic engineering concepts, molecular tools, and technologies utilized in the manipulation, amplification, and introgression of DNA. The volume explains the concepts of genetic engineering, enzymes of genetic engineering, and tools used in genetic engineering. It provides an introduction of recombinant DNA into host cells and discusses the linking of desired gene with DNA vector/gene cloning vector, polymerase chain reactions, the concept and nature of genes, blotting techniques, chromosome jumping, electrophoresis, genetically engineered microorganisms, and molecular markers and their applications.

Genetic Engineering, Volume 2: Applications, Bioethics, and Biosafety expresses the various appreciation and challenges of genetic engineering and issues related to bioethics and biosafety. Chapters cover the legal issues of genetic engineering, including intellectual property rights (IPR) and protection (IPP) and the patenting of living organisms, copyrights, trade secrets, and trademarks. The volume considers the safety and benefits of genetic engineering in human welfare, such as in genetically engineered Bt and Bt cotton, along with the biohazards of recombinant DNA technology. Chapters explain genetically modified organisms and microorganisms, genetic engineering of horticultural crops, genetic engineering in the agricultural sciences, and more.

This 2-volume book will be a valuable asset to upper-level students in cell biology as well as to faculty and researchers involved in genetics, molecular genetics, biochemistry, biotechnology, botany, zoology and agriculture sciences.
