Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts: Marine Biotechnology Abstracts indexes citations and abstracts of marine biotechnology, molecular biology and molecular genetics research. Sources include journals, books, conference papers, reports, patents, dissertations, and maps.
n marine biotechnology, molecular biology and molecular genetics are applied specifically to marine and aquatic organisms. The field holds great promise - in increased production of seafood, in the development of new therapeutic drugs, in the engineering of microbes that digest and remove environmental and marine pollutants, and in launching myriad ventures having immense economic benefit. An ever-increasing number of researchers are turning their investigations to the sea and its organisms. And ASFA Marine Biotechnology Abstracts - now part of the Cambridge Biotechnology Research Series - is the one database that assembles the findings from these diverse investigations in a single source. The database also features coverage of United States patents.
Major areas of coverage include:
