By Department of Defense,National Defense University,U.S. Military,Center for Technology and National Security Policy,Institute for National Strategic Studies

regardless of the very important value of the rising quarter of biotechnology and its function in safeguard making plans and policymaking, no definitive booklet has been written at the subject for the security policymaker, the army pupil, and the private-sector bioscientist attracted to the "emerging possibilities marketplace" of nationwide safeguard. This edited quantity is meant to assist shut this hole and supply the mandatory backdrop for pondering strategically approximately biology in safety making plans and policymaking.

This quantity is set purposes of the organic sciences, right here known as "biologically encouraged innovations," to the army. instead of treating biology as a chain of threats to be handled, such thoughts normally technique the organic sciences as a suite of possibilities for the army to achieve strategic virtue over adversaries. those possibilities diversity from taking a look at every thing from genes to brains, from improving human functionality to making renewable strength, from sensing the surroundings round us to harnessing its power.

Topics coated comprise: organic war, biomolecular engineering, abiotic sensing, biosensors and bioelectronics, bioenergy, biotics, bio-inspired machines, DARPA, echolocating bats, neurobiotics, human purposes, metabolic engineering, bioethics, biotechnology, and more.
