Biotechnology has played an essential role in the development of the healthcare chemical industries. Therange of product includes diagnostic, prophylactic and therapeutic agents. The discovery of a potentiallyactive compound starts a sequence of exhaustive chemical and biological testing that may culminate inmanufacture of the agent or an improved analog. The role of biotechnology in this complex path to regulatoryapproval and marketing is diverse. Biotechnology is a field of applied biology that involves the use of livingorganisms and bioprocesses in engineering, technology, medicine and other fields requiring bio products.
Biotechnology also utilizes these products for manufacturing purpose. Some of the examples of drugsproduced through biotechnology are penicillin, lincomycin, streptomucin, tylosin, peptide antibiotics,cephalosporins, etc. Modern use of similar terms includes genetic engineering as well as cell and tissueculture technologies. Biotechnology draws on the pure biological sciences and in many instances is alsodependent on knowledge and methods from outside the sphere of biology. Conversely, modern biologicalsciences are intimately entwined and dependent on the methods developed through biotechnology and whatis commonly thought of as the life sciences industry. The development of biotechnology is taking place inalmost all fields of human life. The recent advances in the field of basic genetics have opened up new vistas,potentials and possibilities.
Some of the fundamentals of the book are the pharmaceutical industries, marketing strategy, commonfeatures in the evolution of products and processes, process technology fermentation, product recovery, new trends in biotechnology, penicillins, biosynthesis and regulation ofthienamycin, olivanic acids and epithienamycins, aminoglycoside antibiotics, streptidine anddeoxystreptamine, streptomycin, neomycin, paromomycin, ribostamycin and,butirosin gentamicin,micronomicin and sisomicin, tylosin, peptide antibiotics, current applications of peptides, blasticidin S: anagricultural antibiotic bleomycin and bestatin: peptides used in anticancer therapy etc.
The present book contains process of biotechnology based bulk drugs like penicillin, B lactam antibiotics,aminoglycoside antibiotics, peptide antibiotics, anti cancer agents, lincomycin etc. This is very resourcefulbook for entrepreneurs, technocrats, research scholars, libraries etc. Contents

Will We Ever Arrive at the Good Death? By ROBIN MARANTZ HENIG The death rattle is what's so unnerving. People who sit beside someone who is close to death, someone in a stage the experts call ''active dying,'' might hear a sound that's not quite a snore, not quite a gurgle, not quite a rasp. It doesn't hurt; it probably isn't something the dying person is even aware of. But it sounds
