Biotechnology

Biotechnology is technology that utilizes organic systems, living organisms or components of this to expand or create one-of-a-kind merchandise. Brewing and baking bread are examples of techniques that fall within the concept of biotechnology (use of yeast (= living organism) to provide the desired product).

The American Chemical Society defines biotechnology because the application of biological organisms, systems, or procedures by various industries to gaining knowledge of approximately the technology of existence and the development of the cost of substances and organisms together with pharmaceuticals, crops, and livestock.

With the development of genetic engineering within the 1970s, research in biotechnology (and other associated areas which includes medicine, biology etc.) developed rapidly due to the new opportunity to make changes in the organisms' genetic material (DNA).

Today, biotechnology covers many exceptional disciplines (eg. Genetics, biochemistry, molecular biology, etc.). New technology and products are evolved every year in the areas of eg. Medicine (development of recent medicines and therapies), agriculture (improvement of genetically changed plants, biofuels, organic treatment) or industrial biotechnology (manufacturing of chemicals, paper, textiles and food).

Biotech is assisting to heal the world via harnessing nature's very own toolbox and using our own genetic makeup to heal and manual strains of studies by means of:

Reducing costs of infectious ailment;

Saving tens of millions of children's lives;

Changing the chances of serious, life-threatening conditions affecting tens of millions around the world;

Tailoring remedies to people to limit health dangers and side effects;

Creating more specific gear for disorder detection; and

Combating serious illnesses and everyday threats confronting the growing world.
