<b>Essentials of Biological Security</b> <p> <b>A guide to minimizing the threat of misusing benignly intended and dual-use biological research </b> <p>In <i>Essentials of Biological Security: A Global Perspective</i>, a team of distinguished researchers delivers a fundamental resource designed to raise awareness and understanding of biological security as it pertains to the malign manipulation of benignly intended scientific research. <p>Written by experts who have spent decades involved in biological security issues, the book is systematically organized to make it accessible to a wide range of life scientists likely to encounter dangerous opportunities for the deliberate misuse of their research. Readers will also find: <ul><li>A thorough introduction to biological security and the chemical and biological weapons (CBW) threat spectrum </li><li>Comprehensive explorations of the history of biological weapons from antiquity to modern day </li><li>Practical discussions of dual-use technologies and how to minimize their risk </li><li>Expert analyses of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention and other relevant international agreements and organizations </li></ul> <p>Perfect for professionals working in life sciences, medicine, global health, biosafety, and biosecurity, <i>Essentials of Biological Security: A Global Perspective </i>will also benefit anyone with an interest in and being responsible for biological security.
