This book provides important aspects of sustainable degradation of
lignocellulosic biomass which has a pivotal role for the economic production of
several value-added products and biofuels with safe environment. Different
pretreatment techniques and enzymatic hydrolysis process along with the
characterization of cell wall components have been discussed broadly.

The course note provides students with a
research-inspired laboratory experience that introduces standard biochemical
techniques in the context of investigating a current and exciting research
topic, acquired resistance to the cancer drug Gleevec. Techniques include
protein expression, purification, and gel analysis, PCR, site-directed
mutagenesis, kinase activity assays, and protein structure viewing.
