      Biotechnology is the broad area of biology, involving living systems and organisms to develop or make ing on the tools and applications, it often overlaps with related scientific fields. In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, biotechnology has expanded to include new and diverse sciences, such as genomics, recombinant gene techniques, applied immunology, and development of.   This book investigates these changes and provides an economic analysis of the industrial and distributional impacts of new biotechnologies, addressing in detail the significant consequences for developing : Nadia Cuffaro.

      The book introduces the concepts of participatory plant breeding and diversified site-or field potential to meet the needs of small-scale farmers in developing countries whose traditional wisdom and indigenous knowledge can be put to good use through inputs from modern biotechnology for the benefit fo humanity.   This may increase the overall productivity and may offer developing countries a means to sustain themselves and reduce worldwide hunger. Ninety per cent of the world's million "biotech crop farmers" are from developing countries. India, with million hectares, is the fourth among the 14 "mega-biotech crop" countries.
