About these proceedings


Biotechnology is a clearly multidisciplinary field involving biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, immunology, microbiology, pharmacology, fermentation, agriculture, to name just a few. Each of the contributing subject areas brings its own special vocabulary and nomenclature standards and considerable difficulties of communication is the result. This book summarizes the status of the terminology in the various discipline that make up biotechnology.
