It covers the basics of cell biology, biochemistry and molecular biology, and introduces laboratory techniques specific to the technologies addressed in the book; it addresses specific biotechnologies at both the theoretical and application levels. Biotechnology is a field that encompasses both basic science and engineering. There are currently few, if any, biotechnology textbooks that adequately address both areas. Engineering books are equation-heavy and are written in a manner that is very difficult for the non-engineer to understand. Numerous other attempts to present biotechnology are written in a flowery manner with little substance. The author holds one of the first PhDs granted in both biosciences and bioengineering.

Thieman William J. Thieman taught biology at Ventura College for 40 years and biotechnology for 11 years before retiring from full time teaching in He continues to serve as an advisor to the college biotechnology program. He received his B. In , he started the biotechnology program at Ventura College. In , he added the laboratory skills course, and it was articulated as a state-approved vocational program.
He identified technical skills needed for the program while serving three summer internships at Amgen, Biosource now Invotrogen and Biopool. The internships provided an opportunity to learn protocols, interact with lab directors, and query technicians, focusing on identifying the skills needed in these biotechnology companies.
He routinely engaged his contacts at these biotechnology companies to lead lab protocols and describe their experiences to his classes.
Thieman has taught a broad range of undergraduate courses including general, human, and cancer biology. The Economic Development Association presented its Program for Economic Development Award to the biotechnology training program at Ventura College for its work with local biotechnology companies.
His success in acquiring grants to support the program was recognized at the Conference of the National Center for Resource Development. Michael A. Palladino has taught a wide range of courses including anatomy and physiology, biotechnology, cell and molecular biology, general biology, genetics, and endocrinology. For more than 15 years he directed a laboratory of undergraduate student researchers supported by external funding from the National Institutes of Health, biopharma companies, and other agencies.
He and his undergraduates studied molecular mechanisms involved in innate immunity and oxygen homeostasis of mammalian male reproductive organs. Palladino started writing with Benjamin Cummings a co-author of BiologyLabs On-Line, a series of Internet based interactive laboratories for undergraduate students.
Palladino is a co-author on the writing team of W. Klug, M. Cummings, C. Spencer, and D. Learn about new offers and get more deals by joining our newsletter Sign up now.
