Aims and Scope

This publication is an international forum for the rapid dissemination of research results dealing with all aspects of preparative techniques in biotechnology, including synthesis; production; separation; isolation; and purification of substances of biochemical and biotechnological significance, at the laboratory preparative-scale, pilot-scale, and production-scale levels. Disciplines covered by Preparative Biochemistry & Biotechnology include biochemistry, pharmaceuticals, molecular and cell biology, agrochemistry, natural products, biophysics, genetic engineering, bioengineering, fermentation chemistry, and others. Occasionally, topical issues are devoted to specific areas of technology and applications. Book reviews, software reviews, and a calendar of meetings, symposia, and expositions are also included.
