About The Book

Rapid advances along all the frontiers of biological sciences necessitate frequent review of the state of our knowledge not only to keep our self up to date but also to ponder over the various strategies ought to be adopted for further resolution of the science in all its aspects. Advances in biological sciences go beyond molecular base science therefore interest continues to grow still higher and more. The combination of multidisciplinary research in plants, animals, microorganisms and their interaction has taken the life to the greatest extent for the wide horizons of life. This book “Emerging Trends and Challenges in Biosciences” provides an excellent, up-to-date discussion of the state of knowledge and fills an important information gap. This book emphasized the significance of modern biological tools and innovations for the development of eco-friendly and sustainable bioprocesses and products. This book will be useful to a wide array of scientists including biologists, academicians and other industrialists to encourage integration of life sciences for better understanding of the complexity and diversity of life processes.
