This textbook is aimed at medical and other health science students to explain the practical clinical impact of new techniques in biotechnology. It does not set out to explain the minutiae of the techniques themselves. The book focuses on why these techniques are useful in a clinical context and considers their potential uses, limitations and the ethical considerations that surround their use.
