Brief History of Biotechnology
As the latest in a string of articles on the subject of biotechnology, we wanted to explore just how far back this fascinating industry goes, and what it has achieved along the way. Don’t worry, it is not all technical terms! It’s not all glow in the dark cats either (unfortunately). First things first, what… Read more
5 Interesting Facts of Biotechnology You Didn’t Know
Picture yourself peeling a banana and finding, to your surprise, not the flesh of a banana inside but corn on the cob! It may sound impossible but not in biotechnology. Lately, biotechnology has earned a bad rap. People talk about GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and point at biotechnology accusingly. But there are actually a lot of cool things about biotechnology and we’ll talk about some of them here.

Biotechnology combines biology and technology. Its best known (o perhaps most notorious) for its use of genetic manipulation. You may be surprised to discover that a lot stuff at home, especially in your kitchen, or even things you come in contact with daily may be a product of biotechnology. So here are some interesting facts about of biotechnology:
Agriculture is part of biotechnology. Okay, so you’ve heard stories of monster companies developing monster crops from genetic splicing. And maybe you’re nodding your head because you think you’ve known this all along. But then, even without the ‘sinister’genetic manipulation, agriculture uses biological knowhow to get better crop yields and overall better quality produce. For example, your favorite watermelon is seedless because of biotechnology, but not because of any gene splicing. It was achieved by some devious cross-breeding! Smart farmers have their own homegrown knowledge of biotechnology and they know what to do to get a good crop.
Biotechnology comes in different colors. That’s right. It’s not just the rainbow that comes in different hues. There’s blue, red, green and white biotechnologies. Blue is the color of the ocean, so blue biotechnology has to do with water and bodies of water.Think of blood or the Red Cross and I guess that’s why red biotechnology is related to medical processes. Green is the color of plants, so green biotechnology has to do with agriculture. White biotechnology is used in also called industrial biology. Thanks to white biotechnology, factories have developed cleaner manufacturing processes.
Biotechnology saves lives. The insulin that is FDA has approved is synthetic and a product of research and experimentation in biotechnology. Many diabetics are able to live normal lives thanks to synthetic insulin. Because of biotechnology, a lot of drugs have been developed that have improved, if not saved, the lives of many.
There are only 8 crops in the US that are genetically-modified. Surprise! With all the talk about GMOs, we somehow get the impression that everything we eat has undergone genetic manipulation and that our lives are in peril. The eight crops are corn, soybeans, cotton, alfalfa, papaya, canola, sugar beets and squash. Biotechnology has helped make these crops better resistant to pests, fungi, viruses and weeds.
Biotechnology may well save mankind. While others of weapons and wars to save mankind, saving the human race is the future of biotechnology. As we’ve learned, biotechnology in the present has helped make our lives more comfortable, our environment cleaner, our food more enjoyable to eat, and our bodies healthier. The world’s basic need is food, and the world needs to produce more food than ever before in smaller areas of land than we’ve had before. This is the challenge to mankind, and biotechnology may well have the solution.
The wonders of DNA
We all know what DNA is. It is what makes us who we are. It is genetic material, passed through breeding, which stores our cellular information and is responsible for keeping us a part of our own species. Without this amazingly smart biological process, we could be giving birth to cats! There is so much… Read more
The biotechnology industry is one which most of us would (happily) say that we have had many dealings with. In actual fact, it is much weirder and more wonderful than you may think, not to mention mind-blowingly clever. First things first, what is biotechnology? It is the application of biology (cellular processes, microorganisms, genetics) into… Read more
5 Breakthroughs in the World of Biotechnology
Innovations are meant to make our lives better. From time to time, some of them change the lives of humans and other species considerably. Here are 5 breakthroughs in the world of biotechnology: The artificial kidney Kidney diseases and disorders affect over 15% of the American populace. Dialysis requires 3 sessions every week. This is… Read more
Scientists Did What?!
You may have heard of gene splicing before: the act of taking one particular gene with a specific function from one species, and inserting it into another. It is a far more complex process than that, but that is the gist of it. It is without a doubt completely insane and completely incredible. Scientists have… Read more
The Future of Biotechnology
It is almost impossible to predict exactly where any kind of science will take us in the future, but it would be nice to know. We have looked at upcoming research projects, scientific journals and the focus of the key companies within biotechnology, and have tried to work out what it all means and how… Read more
Where advancements in biotechnology have brought us in 2015
Biotechnology Industry Biotechnology is the modification and use of living organisms to develop new products. Depending on the area of application, it often overlaps with other fields, such as agriculture, food production, medicine, industrial sphere, etc. Biotechnology in present Biotechnology in the present medical sphere finds applications in areas such as drug production, gene therapy,… Read more
