    In this volume, 10 prominent scientists offer perspectives and insights from the fields of physiology, plant biology, microbiology, genetics, biophysics, molecular biology, immunology and biotechnology to answer these questions with regard to India. They examine not only the major discoveries, developments and research that shaped the direction of the discipline, but also the research groups and institutions that made them possible. This comprehensive analysis includes the role and influence of various funding agencies; the establishment of formal training programmes, university departments and research institutions; and the founding of professional societies for furthering the progress of various fields of research. In the course of this study, the volume also considers issues such as the ethical implications of new developments in biotechnology, and the practical applications of research in agriculture, medicine, forensics, industry, etc. Reflecting the immense and varied scope of the subject, this exhaustive volume offers a prospect of a vast and evolving field with an increasingly influential and important presence in India.
