This book deals with the important issues involved in developing biotechnologically based industries in developing countries. The science and most of the techniques are well established, and it is often possible to obtain the desired finance. This book however, examines the sorts of choices that a developing country has to make to go ahead with projects and their likely socio-economic consequences. Each of the chapters in this book is written by experts in their field and discusses the current biotechnologically-based industries and their state of development, their suitability for various economies, and the problems associated with developing them. Other chapters discuss environmental questions and further socio-economic factors that need to be considered in order to bring about successful wealth creation in these countries.
