This interdisciplinary book series covers trending and emerging topics in biotechnology. Each volume explores the challenges and advances in a specific subfield of microbial, human and animal biotechnology from various perspectives. The series focuses on introducing readers to the fundamentals of diverse biotechnological subjects, reviewing the significant scientific advances to date and highlighting novel biological and genetic tools in the field. Further, it presents cutting-edge discoveries and discusses how the various themes addressed will impact science and society in the future. The series aims to contribute toward solutions to major ecological, environmental and health problems.

Over the last century, the modern scientific and technological revolution has brought outstanding achievements for humankind. Science and technology are clearly distinct yet closely related. Science directs technological innovation and technology accelerates the progress of science. In the field of Life Sciences, the combination of science and technology are providing unprecedented advances, with the opening of a wide range of new lines of research and the development of novel powerful technologies. As never before, advances in Life Sciences hold tremendous promise for surmounting many of the major ecological, environmental and health challenges faced by our society. For many, biology and biotechnology will define the scientific progress and the societal development in the 21st century. For this reason, there is a great need for a comprehensive and integrated literature that explore in details the various key themes concerning the development of biology and biotechnology, and how these key themes can contribute to the achievement of major national and international policy goals, such as economic growth and job creation, public health, environmental protection and sustainable development. Historically, major scientific/technological/societal challenges have always been important as drivers for innovation, economic growth, and solving social and environmental problems. The resulting scientific and technological research derived from such grand challenges can be used to turn major endeavors into opportunities and progress, with the Human Genome Project as one of the best examples.

“Grand Challenges in Biology and Biotechnology” is intended for researchers and advanced students working in biological and biochemical disciplines, as well as educated non-experts interested in life sciences. Furthermore, it supports decision-makers in government, the private sector, and non-governmental organizations in their efforts to achieve national and international goals.

The series operates an editorial peer-review system. Chapters are reviewed by the series editor and respective volume editor(s).

The Editor-in-Chief accepts unsolicited proposals for new volumes.
