Biotechnology Research Abstracts

Dates Covered & Contents:

Beginning in 1980 coverage encompasses a wide range of disciplines and provides access to international research on all aspects of biochemical, medical, and microbial technology as applied to bioengineering, medicine, agriculture and environmental science. Major areas of coverage include: genetic engineering and gene therapy; medical technology; imaging; pharmaceuticals; drug delivery and vaccines; tissue engineering, biomechanics, and biomaterials; cell culture, fermentation and process engineering; waste treatment and bioremediation; methodology; agricultural biotechnology; food biotechnology; bioinformatics and computer applications; biosensors; products produced by biotechnological methods

This database was first created in 1983 under the name Biotechnology Research Abstracts. In 1993, it split into three unique databases: Agricultural and Environmental Biotechnology Abstracts, BioEngineering Abstracts, and Medical and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology Abstracts. All three databases ceased publishing a print journal equivalent in 2003, and in 2007 the three databases were merged into one electronic database under the original name: Biotechnology Research Abstracts
