"Principally aimed at students of biology and pre-med courses it can be recommended for students of health sciences. Senior clinicians who have been witnessing recent developments but may not have had the benefit of structured instruction will find the book instructive, particularly the chapter on Recombinant DNA and Genetic Engineering." (Journal of Tropical Pediatrics, 2011)
