Extreme Genetic Enginering: An Introduction to Synthetic Biology
Publisher: ETC Group 2007
Number of pages: 72
Transgenics, the kind of engineering you find in genetically modified tomatoes and corn, is old news. As recombinant DNA splicing-techniques turn 30 years old, a new generation of extreme biotech enthusiasts have moved to the next frontier in the manipulation of life: building it from scratch.

Synthetic biology is being pursued overwhelmingly for beneficial purposes ranging from reducing the burden of disease to improving agricultural yields to remediating pollution. This book explores and envisions potential misuses of synthetic biology.
by Idah Sithole-Niang - InTech
The book covers a wide range of topics in genetic engineering of microorganisms, plants and animals: the genetic engineering of microorganisms to produce antibiotics, the gene targeting and transformation in plants, and much more.
