The Encyclopedia of Industrial Biotechnology combines Wiley’s acclaimed Encyclopedia of Bioprocess Technology and the Encyclopedia of Cell Technology in order to create a single resource and gateway to the many areas of industrial biotechnology for students, researchers, and technologists. In addition to revising and updating existing articles, the new Encyclopedia of Industrial Biotechnology has been greatly expanded to cover important areas of pharmaceutical and biologics bioprocess technology, including:
  • Production of vaccines
  • Biopharmaceuticals and methods for manufacturing biomaterials
  • Biofabrication for the production of microfluidics
  • Tissue engineering
  • Biosensors
  • Bioelectronics
  • Bioarrays 
  • Bio-nanotechnology


The Encyclopedia of Industrial Biotechnology was published in order to help readers make sense of the vast amounts of information that have been published around the world across a broad array of ournals, books, and websites. Encyclopedia of Industrial Biotechnology is the ideal starting point for research projects involving any aspect of industrial biological processes, including fermentation, biocatalysis, bioseparation, and biofabrication. 

  • Presents all vital aspects – theoretical and practical – of industrial biological processes, techniques, equipment, products, as well as ethical and regulatory issues
  • Offers comprehensive coverage of industrial biotechnology in an easy to use, A to Z, encyclopedia format
  • Covers existing and emerging aspects of the biotechnology industry, including significant new information on Biopharmaceuticals and Biologics Fabrication
