Biotechnology is now a pervasive influence in healthcare, agro-food, environmental and energy industries. This groundbreaking book is the first comparative analysis of the relative strengths of global bioregions. The author assesses new theorisations of the role of scientific and research knowledge in economic development, and shows how the bioregions, their research institutes and both large multinationals and small biotechnology firms have created a globalized world of interconnected bioregions.
