Plasmids are integral to biological research as models for innumerable mechanisms of living cells, as tools for creating the most diverse therapies, and as crucial helpers for understanding the dissemination of microbial populations. The role of plasmids in antibiotic resistance and virulence, together with the generalization of “omics” disciplines, has recently ignited a new wave of interest in plasmids.

This comprehensive ebook, Plasmids: Biology and Impact in Biotechnology and Discovery (PDF) contains a series of expertly written chapters focused on mechanistic details of plasmid function, plasmid biology, and the increased utilization of plasmids in pharmacology and biotechnology that has occurred in the past decade.

Plasmids: Biology and Impact in Biotechnology and Discovery also serves as an invaluable reference for researchers in the wide range of disciplines and fields that utilize plasmids and can also be used as a textbook for graduate or upper-level undergraduate courses in molecular biology or biotechnology.
