1. “Genetic Engineering” by Smita Rastogi and Neelam Pathak

“Genetic Engineering” Book Review: This is a book that clearly explains the fundamental concepts in genetic engineering which are gene cloning,restriction endonucleases, chemical synthesis of oligonucleotides, cDNA synthesis, plasmids, and polymerase chain reaction. It is written in a very detailed manner so readers from different backgrounds can use the book. There are also discrete chapters on molecular markets and public concerns. Every chapter in the book starts with the chapter’s objectives and a detailed recap of the principal concepts is given at the end of the chapter after that the review questions and exercises are included.

2. “An Introduction to Genetic Engineering” by Nicholl

“An Introduction to Genetic Engineering” Book Review: This textbook, which is currently in its third edition, is designed for undergraduate students interested in genetic engineering. It provides fundamental concepts needed to understand the basics of genetic engineering such as gene manipulation. The book is split in three sections; the first section lays a foundation to the relevant basic molecular biology,the second shows the processes used to manipulate genes and the third displays applications of the technology. There is a new chapter set apart for the emerging importance of bioinformatics as a distinct discipline. There are also text boxes that show key points in the topics in the book. Chapter summaries that specify aims and learning outcomes are also added. All the information in the book are in a student friendly manner.

3. “Genetic Engineering” by Sandhya Mitra

“Genetic Engineering” Book Review: This book is designed to provide students with the important concepts in genetic engineering in a very student-friendly manner to enable students to grasp information easily. It is currently in its second edition. The book presents readers with an insight into manipulating biological systems for the benefit of humankind. The entire genetic engineering curricula is well covered in the book. Methods to culture eukaryotic systems are included along with fundamental immunological techniques. Over 60 Laboratory exercises are included so students can test their knowledge.

4. “Principles of Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering” by A J Nair

“Principles of Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering” Book Review: This is a book meant to show the technology supporting biological processes and the usage of this technology in the research of key building blocks of the body, growth and cultivation of plants and animal cells. It explains the processes of genetics and molecular biology in comprehending the concepts of genetics, genomic functions and gene expression in a very understandable way. It also describes the processes of biotechnology like recombinant DNA technology and bioinformatics.The pragmatic results of these processes like how genetic manipulation is applied,its advantages and what the bigger issues concerning the use of this technology, have been discussed with examples. Undergraduates and postgraduates in the biological science, genetic engineering and biotechnology fields would certainly find it beneficial.

5. “Genetics and Genetic Engineering” by A Mani

“Genetics and Genetic Engineering” Book Review: The book is divided into two parts: the genetics section and the genetic engineering section. The first section covers fundamental concepts surrounding genetics such as the introduction to genetics, the genetic interaction, sex determination in animals, mutation human chromosomes, chromosomal abnormalities, syndromes, genetic councseling,effect of drugs on human heredity and inbreeding and outreeding. The second section covers key concepts in genetic engineering, tools used in genetic engineering, genetically engineered microorganisms and other important notions in genetic engineering.

6. “Chromosome and Genomic Engineering in Plants: Methods and Protocols (Methods in Molecular Biology)” by Minoru Murata

“Chromosome and Genomic Engineering in Plants: Methods and Protocols (Methods in Molecular Biology)” Book Review: This book gathers protocols for chromosome engineering and genome editing in two recently developed approaches for manipulating chromosomal and genomic DNA in plants. The first approach in the book is a plant chromosome vector system that allows the introduction of desired genes or DNA into certain sites on the chromosome vector explicitly by sequence-specific recombination. The second approach in the book is genome-editing that makes it feasible to introduce mutations into any of the genes of DNA that we want to alter. Additionally, this book covers other related techniques used to accelerate progress in plant chromosome and genome engineering.

7. “Principles of Gene Manipulation and Genomics” by Sandy B Primrose and Richard Twyman

advertisement
“Principles of Gene Manipulation and Genomics” Book Review: This book, which is in its 7th edition, is designed for undergraduate and graduate students interested in genetics, genomics, molecular biology and recombinant DNA technology. It expands on the rising integration between gene manipulation and genomics. Fundamental and up to date gene manipulation methods, genome analysis, genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics are expanded on. Two new chapters on the applications of genomics are also added. Finally there is a link to a website where students and lecturers can have access to informative materials, multiple choice questions,websites related to the subject matter and all the artwork in a downloadable format.

8. “Genetic Engineering Cloning DNA (Genetic Engineering: Principles and Methods)” by David M Glover
9. “From Genes to Genomes: Concepts and Applications of DNA Technology” by Jeremy W Dale and Malcolm von Schantz

“From Genes to Genomes: Concepts and Applications of DNA Technology” Book Review: This textbook is focused on introducing the major methods and concepts involved in cloning genes and in examining their expressions and variations. This is the third edition so it is well updated with different details like better description of whole-genome sequencing technologies and improved treatment of bioinformatics. There are also well illustrated diagrams in every part of the book. There is a link to a website designed to show the figure necessary to the subject matter in the book. Anybody interested in molecular genetics would certainly find this book useful.

10. “Plant Cold Hardiness: Gene Regulation and Genetic Engineering” by imusti
