This review summarizes recent progress of a newly developed novel bioengineering
technology, namely low-energy ion beam bioengineering (IBB), achieved at Chiang Mai
University, Thailand. Low-energy IBB has demonstrated powerful impacts and highly
potential applications on biology, agriculture, horticulture and life science owing to
multiple-factor interaction between energetic ions and biological organisms as well as
low-cost and convenience in operation. Since late 1990s, IBB research programs have
been vigorously carried out at Chiang Mai University. A group of scientists consisting of
physicists, biologists, horticulturists, agriculturists, chemists, and medical scientists have
developed special IBB ion beam lines and relevant techniques to use low-energy ion
beam bombardment of biological organisms to induce mutation breeding and gene
transfer. Besides the IBB applications, research interests are also focused onto basic
mechanisms on ion interaction with DNA and biological cells to reveal physics and
biology involved in the ion beam inductions of mutation and gene transfer. The results
have been applied to serve developments of local agriculture and horticulture and
promote national scientific research qualities. The contents include introductions to lowenergy
IBB techniques and facilities, and chapters on ion beam induced gene transfer, ion
interaction with the cell envelope, ion beam induced mutation, and ion interaction with
living cells and DNA.
