Ethnophytotechnology: Harnessing the Power of Ethnobotany with Biotechnology

Ethnophytotechnology: Harnessing the Power of Ethnobotany with Biotechnology
Cassandra L. Quave, John de la Parra

Ethnobotany (the scientific study of traditional plant knowledge) has aided the discovery of important medicines. However, as single-molecule drugs or synergistic mixtures, these remedies have faced obstacles in production and analysis. Now, advances in bioreactor technology, metabolic engineering, and analytical instrumentation are improving the production, manipulation, and scientific understanding of such remedies.
