Biotechnology is receiving wide attention from policymakers, researchers, business houses, financial institutions and entrepreneurs. It is, however, still so much a part of laboratory research that its terminologies, techniques, processes and developments are still an enigma. And taming this technology  as a  business  enterprise  is proving complex and difficult.

In the present publication Prof P.D. Malgavkar has attempted to explain the intricacies of this technology so that these could be understood by a layman. Whilst indicating its possibilities in the field of agriculture, health, chemicals and energy, he has brought home the ethical issues and engineering challenges involved in its development and commercialization.  He has suggested  entry avenues in biotechnology  business  for both the existing business  houses  and new research  entrepreneurs  and has spelt out specific financial  and marketing strategies  suitable at different  stages of the business venture.
