The benefits of genomics and biotechnology are concentrated primarily in the industrialized world, while their potential to combat neglected diseases in the developing world has been largely untapped. Without building developing world biotechnology capacity to address local health needs, this disparity will only intensify. To assess the potential of genomics to Cited by: Principles of Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering.

Chapter 9Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology Around the world scientists are working to develop new varieties of crops that can resist pests, use less water, and generally thrive in less than optimal growing conditions. Hand in hand, with scientific research, countries must adopt policies that will allow their farmers to take advantage of new products being developed . Biotechnology is a fast-developing 21st century technology and interdisciplinary science that has already made an impact on commercial and non-commercial aspects of human life, such as stem cell research, cloning, pharmaceuticals, food and agriculture, bioenergetics, and information book, appropriate for novices to the biotechnology / genetics fields and also Reviews: 1.
