Biotechnology is a broad area of biology , involving the use of living systems and organisms to develop or make products.
Biotechnology , the use of biology to solve problems and make useful products. The most prominent area of biotechnology is the production of therapeutic proteins and other drugs through genetic engineering. Biotechnology is particularly important in the field of medicine, where it facilitates the production of therapeutic proteins and other drugs.

Five overarching concerns of animal biotechnology dominated discussions before the committee. The first was whether anything theoretically could go wrong with any of the technologies. For example, is it theoretically possible that a vector used for gene transfer could escape and become integrated into the DNA of another organism and thereby create a hazard? The second was whether the food and other products of animal biotechnology, whether genetically engineered or not, or from clones, are substantially different from those derived by more traditional, extant technologies. A third major concern was whether the technologies raise novel environmental issues, and a fourth was whether they raise animal welfare issues.
The below mentioned article will highlight the scope and branches of biotechnology. Biotechnology has rapidly emerged as an area of activities having marked impact on all aspects of human welfare ranging from food processing, protecting the environment, human health to quality of human life throughout the world. As we can say the 20th century was the era of electronics, similarly 21st century can be designated as the era of biotechnology. Biotechnology basically aims at improving the quality of human life and at protecting him from dangerous diseases. It deals with the development of transgenic animals for increased milk or meat production with resistance to various diseases.
Scope and importance in crop improvement 4. It has been used to: bake bread, brew alcoholic beverages, … Tissue culture and its history 3. The most prominent area of biotechnology is the production of therapeutic proteins and other drugs through genetic engineering. Biotechnology can be broadly defined as "using organisms or their products for commercial purposes. By World War I, however, zymotechnology would expand to tackle larger industrial issues, and the potential of industrial fermentation gave rise to biotechnology. The book traces the evolution of biotechnology in the broadest sense from prehistoric organismal manipulation by our first settled ancestors through to speculation about future directions for the technology as it increasingly intersects with other high technologies such as IT and Nanotech.
Animal agriculture is being transformed by rapid advances in biotechnology—a term that encompasses a variety of technologies, including genetic engineering GE , genetic modification, transgenics, recombinant DNA techniques, and cloning, among others. Producers are interested in the application of biotechnology to improve productivity, consistency, and quality; to introduce new food, fiber, and medical products; and to protect the environment. Potential human health applications of transgenic animals include producing biopharmaceuticals and generating organs, tissues, and cells for xenotransplantation. Criticisms of such applications involve issues ranging from food safety and social resistance to potential negative impacts on animal welfare and on ecosystems. Questions also have arisen about the adequacy of the current regulatory structure to assess and manage any risks created by these technologies. On January 15, , the U. Consistent with the Coordinated Framework for Regulation of Biotechnology, FDA will do so under its existing statutory authority and regulations.
Introduction. During the past 30 years biotechnology has been used to develop a range of useful types of animal. These animals have made huge contributions.

The goal is to make products, to improve animals and to develop microorganisms for specific agricultural uses. Examples of animal biotechnology include creating transgenic animals animals with one or more genes introduced by human intervention , using gene knock out technology to make animals with a specific inactivated gene and producing nearly identical animals by somatic cell nuclear transfer or cloning.
The applications of biotechnology includes plant tissue culture, production of transgenic in animal and plants, applications in medicine as tools and therapeutics, creation of new enzymes and their immobilization for industrial use, development of monoclonal antibodies and control of pollutions, etc. The document focuses on the development and application of modern biotechnology based on new enabling techniques of recombinant-DNA technology, often referred to as genetic engineering. The history of biotechnology begins with zymotechnology, which commenced with a focus on brewing techniques for beer. By World War I, however, zymotechnology would expand to tackle larger industrial issues, and the potential of industrial fermentation gave rise to biotechnology.
