Biological, Physical and Technical Basics of Cell Engineering

The book will aim at reviewing latest developments in Biological, Chemical and Physical Basics of Cell Engineering. We are planning to publish it at the beginning of 2017. It will bridge recent achievements in natural sciences and technology with biology and medicine which is a generic bioengineering feature. Our previous books have been successful and influential. It encouraged a next editor generation continuing the task. The book will be meant to have life and (human) spirit, and will contribute pioneering interdisciplinary research in life sciences. The aims are to providing readers, including students, faculty, and scientists in academia and industry, new information on Biological, Chemical and Physical Basics of Cell Engineering to enhance understanding and innovation on these subjects:
