The book attempts to present the law relating to biotechnology regulation. Law and policy issues pertinent to the most promising, sophisticated, and yet controversial technology in the contemporary world have been discussed, debated, analysed, and presented in a simple, scientific, and specific manner. In the introductory chapters, the scientific analogy and development of biotechnology and also varied applications and commercial uses of biotechnology that raise legal concerns have been presented in a lucid manner. The various legal issues pertinent to biotechnology such as those related to policy, intellectual property, trade-related aspects, environmental concerns, biodiversity matters, and human rights concerns have been discussed in detail. Also, the legal concerns have been discussed from the perspective of the USA, Europe, the UK, and India. There is an exclusive chapter on biotechnology regulation in India, which highlights the regulatory canopy on biotechnology in the country. An attempt has been made to showcase the different legal aspects of biotechnology promotion, protection, regulation, and governance at the international, regional, and domestic levels.
