Introduction to Ion Beam Biotechnology

Yu Zengliang, PhD
National Key Laboratory of Ion Beam Bioengineering

Institute of Plasma Physics

Chinese Academy of Sciences

Hefei, China

Introduction to Ion Beam Biotechnology presents an up-to-date treatment of modern ion beam biotechnology and with respect to applications of ion beam bombardment of living cellular material in the hybrid field of ion beam physics and biology. This focus affirms Springer’s commitment to publishing important introductory topics of emerging areas of interest to bioscience researchers, bioengineers, and their colleagues in affiliated disciplines.

Introduction to Ion Beam Biotechnology contains reviews and discussions of contemporary and relevant topics in the field. It is intended to serve both as an introductory textbook at the graduate and advanced undergraduate levels in a bioengineering curriculum, and as a guide and reference for seasoned researchers in the field.

Key Topics include:

– Ion beam formation

– Ion implantation fundamentals

– Interaction between energetic ions and biological organisms

– Reaction processes of ion implanted biological small molecules

– Damage and repair of ion-bombarded DNA

– Cell damage due to ion bombardment

– Biological effects of ion implantation

– Fundamentals of ion-bombardment-induced genetic variation

– Ion beam mutation breeding of crops

– Ion beam mutation breeding of microbes

– Ion beam induced gene transfer

– Ion beam induced synthesis of organic molecules

– Single-ion bombardment mutation of cells

This compendium on this novel new area of scientific research is essential reading for all academics, research scientists, biologists, and industry professionals wishing to take advantage of the latest developments in this emerging field.

About the Author:

Prof. Yu Zengliang is a pioneer and major figure in the field of ion beam biotechnology. An internationally recognized scientist with numerous publications, Prof. Yu is Director of the National Key Laboratory of Ion Beam Bioengineering, Institute of Plasma Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, at Hefei, People's Republic of China.

About the authors

Professor Yu Zuliang heads the Laboratory of Ion Beam Bioengineering of the Institute of Plasma Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences which is one of the most prestigious research institutes in china. About 15 years ago, he started a brand new research area by bombarding plant seeds with low energy ions and subsequently discovered mutations in the bombarded seeds. Radiation induced mutations have been investigated for some significant contribution to the field of Radiation biology. In additional to the application of the biotechnology he developed, his research in the last several years has been focused on the understanding of the mechanisms for such mutations.
