A clear and authoritative guide to the principles and practice of the utilization of enzymes in biotechnology is presented in this textbook. Enzymes have increasingly important applications in the food and pharmaceutical industry, in medicine, and as biosensors. The reader is provided with a balanced account of the practicalities and problems involved in harnessing this technology. While the underlying principles are fully explained, the emphasis throughout is on the practical and economic aspects of enzyme usage. The book devotes in-depth coverage to the uses of enzymes in their free and immobilized state. This book is intended for students of biotechnology and biochemical engineering.
