The Coming Biotech Age
The Business of Bio-materialseBook - 2000
"An essential discussion to the future of business, The Coming Biotech Age describes the biotech revolution taking place within our leading universities, corporations and government. Without daunting scientific jargon, Oliver reveals what everyone - CEOs, investors, policymakers and others interested in the social ramifications of bioterials - must know, for instance: how the biotech lab is becoming a Gene-Factory - with the mass production of healthcare, agricultural, and commercial/industrial products; how the Bioterial Age will fundamentally alter the laws of economics as we know them; and how biotechnology will eliminate aging and disease." "Oliver also takes a look at the biovisionaries - researchers, scientists and business leaders - behind the biotech movement, and the biocapitalists who are poised to cash in on the new era."--BOOK JACKET.
