Protein Biotechnology

Gary Walsh and Denis R. Headon
John Wiley & Sons
Publication date: 


ISBN 0-471-94393 newer edition:
Jim used this book in the past as the text for his biotech courses, and this is the book that Genentech used as the text for their in-house training course in 1996 and 1997. Sonia Wallman, who has an excellent biotech program at New Hampshire Technical College used this book also. This book is written at the appropriate level for freshman/sophomore/reentry students and it covers many issues in process science and manufacturing. It has an excellent discussion of recovery and downstream processes, but is weak on the upstream topics. It also has a European bias, that is, it emphasizes regulation of the industry by the European Union rather than by the FDA - this makes it less useful for an American program.
