Bioremediation is a term used in biotechnology which is helping in cleaning the environment. It’s a process in which the microorganisms or their enzymes are used to clean up environment which is contaminated. With the help of microorganisms certain compounds that are contaminating the environment are degraded.it is one of the solutions that are used to reduce the pollution. There are 2 types of bioremediation. In Biodegredation organic compounds are degraded or broken down with the help of microorganisms. The organic compound that is degraded is usually the animal and plant waste which is converted into certain elements that are returned to the environment and are used again usually by plants. The artificial compounds may also be bio degraded but these compounds must resemble the animal or plant waste or organic compounds. With the help of this biodegradation the elements or the nutrients are returned to the environment. It is a very important process. Usually the materials like certain plastics are manufactured focusing on the aspect that it should be biodegradable which can be degraded easily into simpler compounds. Biomass is an industry term for getting energy by burning wood, and other organic matter. Burning biomass releases carbon emissions, around a quarter higher than burning coal, but has been classed as a "renewable" energy source in the EU and UN legal frameworks, because plants can be regrown. Bioenergy is renewable energy made available from materials derived from biological sources. Biomass is any organic material which has stored sunlight in the form of chemical energy.

National And International Level Biosafety Regulations In most of developing countries, biosafety regulation is still in its infancy. Appropriate biosafety regulations are one of the prerequisites for a successful transfer of biotechnology to and, among developing countries. Important issues in the debate on biotechnology regulation are the uplifting of field trials, systematising of regulations, and capacity development in developing countries. The regulation of biosafety is a tool for the safe deployment of biotechnology applications into the environment. It is rather a specialised form of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), focussing on the biological consequences of applying Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). As a part of EIA, the nature of the organism, the environment in which the organism is to be released, and the interaction of such species, with reference to intraspecific and interspecific are to be analysed. Field trials constitute a major part of the transgenic plants impact assessments, however, biosafety concerns all Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). TRIALS ON–FIELD Among several industrialized countries, biosafety regulations have been implemented since the mid 1980s; however, there are significant differences among some of these countries. Good experience has been established, both in the regulatory process as well as in analysing the environmental impact of transgenic crops through small demonstration trials.

The societal impact of the genetic engineering revolution is only beginning to be felt in the marketplace, and most molecular biologists agree that the biotechnology industry is only in its infancy. Because of the need for substantial investment of venture capital for research and development of new products, and the long time and additional capital required to bring a product to market, many new companies have struggled and remained small. Many also have folded or have been acquired by larger companies. However, as more products are approved by federal regulatory agencies and begin to yield profits for the companies involved, it is likely that this industry will mature and expand significantly to provide excellent opportunities for students with training in the biological sciences and chemistry. Industries that are especially large and active developers of biotechnology include the pharmaceutical industry, food and natural products processing industries and agricultural (plant and animal) industries.

 

Biomaterials are those materials which are usually made of multiple components that interact with biological system. Biomaterials are normally used in medical application like drug delivery, therapeutics, and diagnostics to replace a natural function. The most commonly used biomaterials are polymers. All biomaterials meet certain criteria and regulatory requirements before they can be qualified for use in medical applications. Biomaterial Science has a broad scope that covers the fundamental science of biomaterials through to their biomedical applications.

Regenerative medicine is the branch of medicine that develops methods to repair or replace damaged or diseased cells, organs or tissues. Regenerative medicine includes the generation and use of therapeutic stem cells, tissue engineering and the production of artificial organs. One of the greatest needs for regenerative therapy is in the field of whole organ replacement. The first bone marrow and solid-organ transplants were done years ago. But advances in developmental and cell biology, immunology, and other fields are new opportunities to refine existing regenerative therapies and develop new ones.

Intellectual property protection for biotechnology is currently in a state of flux. Whilst it used to be the case that living organisms were largely excluded from protection, attitudes are now changing and increasingly biotechnology is receiving some form of protection. These changes have largely taken place in the USA and other industrialized countries, but as other countries wish to compete in the new biotechnological markets, they are likely to change their national laws in order to protect and encourage investment in biotechnology.

 

Protein engineering is varying the structure of a protein to perk up or amend its properties. This unit summarizes concepts for protein engineering using rational design, directed evolution, and combinations of them. Different strategies are offered for identifying the best mutagenesis method, how to make out desired variants by screening or selection. This should enable researchers to choose the most hopeful tools to solve their protein engineering challenges. It is the process of mounting useful or valuable proteins. It is a young discipline, through much research taking place into the sympathetic of protein folding and recognition for protein design principles. There are two general strategies for protein engineering, 'rational' protein design and directed evolution. Using computational methods, a protein with a novel fold has been designed. The engineering of fusion proteins has yielded rilonacept, a pharmaceutical which has secured FDA approval for the healing of cryopyrin associated periodic syndrome. The prospects for protein engineering, including the roles of x-ray crystallography, chemical synthesis of DNA, computer modeling of protein structure and folding.

Cell biology (formerly called cytology, from the Greek κυτος, kytos, "vessel") is a branch of biology that studies the different structures and functions of the cell and focuses mainly on the idea of the cell as the basic unit of life. Cell biology explains the structure and organization of the organelles they contain. It includes the physiological properties, metabolic processes, signaling pathways, life cycle, and interactions with their environment. This is done both on a microscopic and molecular level as it encompasses prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells. Knowing the components of cells and how cells work is fundamental to all biological sciences; it is also essential for research in bio-medical fields such as cancer, and other diseases. Research in cell biology is closely related to genetics, biochemistry, molecular biology, immunology, and developmental biology.

Immunology is a branch of biology that covers the study of immune systems in all organisms. Immunology charts, measures, and contextualizes the: physiological functioning of the immune system in states of both health and diseases; malfunctions of the immune system in immunological disorders (such as autoimmune diseases, hypersensitivities, immune deficiency, and transplant rejection); the physical, chemical and physiological characteristics of the components of the immune system in vitro, in situ, and in vivo. Immunology has applications in numerous disciplines of medicine, particularly in the fields of organ transplantation, oncology, virology, bacteriology, parasitology, psychiatry, and dermatology

 

Bioinformatics is the application of computer technology for the management of biological information. Biological and genetic information can be gathered, stored, analyzed and integrated by computers for further gene-based drug discovery and development. This scientific field is essential for understanding human diseases and identifying new molecular targets for drug discovery by using genomic information. Biosensors are analytical devices which can be used for the detection of an analyte by combining a biological component with a physicochemical detector. Generally, the main purpose of a biosensor is to quickly test a sample for the presence of a target analyte. Biomolecules are generally used as the recognition component for the biosensor.

Biochemistry is the branch of science that explores the chemical processes within and related to living organisms. It is a laboratory based science that brings together biology and chemistry. By using chemical knowledge and techniques, biochemists can understand and solve biological problems.

Biochemistry focuses on processes happening at a molecular level. It focuses on what’s happening inside our cells, studying components like proteins, lipids and organelles. It also looks at how cells communicate with each other, for example during growth or fighting illness. Biochemists need to understand how the structure of a molecule relates to its function, allowing them to predict how molecules will interact.

Biochemistry covers a range of scientific disciplines, including genetics, microbiology, forensics, plant science and medicine. Because of its breadth, biochemistry is very important and advances in this field of science over the past 100 years have been staggering. It’s a very exciting time to be part of this fascinating area of study.

Biophysics has been critical to understanding the mechanics of how the molecules of life are made, how different parts of a cell move and function, and how complex systems in our bodies—the brain, circulation, immune system, and others— work. Biophysics is a vibrant scientific field where scientists from many fields including math, chemistry, physics, engineering, pharmacology, and materials sciences, use their skills to explore and develop new tools for understanding how biology—all life—works.

 Physical scientists use mathematics to explain what happens in nature. Life scientists want to understand how biological systems work. These systems include molecules, cells, organisms, and ecosystems that are very complex. Biological research in the 21st century involves experiments that produce huge amounts of data. How can biologists even begin to understand this data or predict how these systems might work?

This is where biophysicists come in. Biophysicists are uniquely trained in the quantitative sciences of physics, math, and chemistry and they are able tackle a wide array of topics, ranging from how nerve cells communicate, to how plant cells capture light and transform it into energy, to how changes in the DNA of healthy cells can trigger their transformation into cancer cells, to so many other biological problems.

This technical approach to biology allows scientists to envisage and create systems that can be used for biological research. Biologically inspired nanotechnology uses biological systems as the encourisation for technologies not yet created. However, as with nanotechnology and biotechnology, bio nanotechnology does have many potential ethical issues associated with it.

Microbial Biochemistry

For thousands of years, microorganisms have been used to supply products such as bread, beer and wine. A second phase of traditional microbial biotechnology began during World War I and resulted in the development of the acetone-butanol and glycerol fermentations, followed by processes yielding, for example, citric acid, vitamins and antibiotics. In the early 1970s, traditional industrial microbiology was merged with molecular biology to yield more than 40 biopharmaceutical products, such as erythropoietin, human growth hormone and interferons. Today, microbiology is a major participant in global industry, especially in the pharmaceutical, food and chemical industries.

Advancements In Biotechnology

Biotechnology as the name indicates that based on technology the progression of biology. Nowadays the whole world relies on technologies, into that where biology is our Base of life, & when scientists are using technology in biology it is doing wonders. Biotechnology can be used in several fields and sectors. For example in medical therapy, in war-fields (Bio--weapons), In agricultural biology, in reproductive biology, in cell biology, in genetic engineering. There is endless ways in which biotechnology is being used. It is a great combination which actually has the ability to change the impossible into possible.

Industrial Biotechnology and Fermentation techniques

The application of industrial biotechnology has been proven to make significant contributions towards mitigating the impacts of climate change in these and other sectors. In addition to environmental benefits, biotechnology can improve industry’s performance and product value and, as the technology develops and matures, white biotechnology will yield more and more viable solutions for our environment. These innovative solutions bring added benefits for both our climate and our economy.

 

Genetic Engineering and rDNA Technology

Genetic engineering is the manipulation of an organism's genome using biotechnology Principles. It is a set of technologies used to change the genetic makeup of cells, including the transfer of genes within and across species domains for the production of improved or novel organisms. Genetic engineering has applications in medicine, research, industry and agriculture and can be used on a wide range of plants, animals and microorganisms. Tissue engineering is the use of a integration of cells, engineering and materials principles, and suitable biochemical and physicochemical factors to improve or replace biological tissues.

Agricultural biotechnology is the area of biotechnology involving applications to agriculture. Agricultural biotechnology has been practiced for a long time, as people have sought to improve agriculturally important organisms by selection and breeding. An example of traditional agricultural biotechnology is the development of disease-resistant wheat varieties by cross-breeding different wheat types until the desired disease resistance was present in a resulting new variety. Modern agricultural biotechnology improves crops in more targeted ways. The best known technique is genetic modification, but the term agricultural biotechnology (or green biotechnology) also covers such techniques as Marker Assisted Breeding, which increases the effectiveness of conventional breeding. Whatever the particular technology used, the crops may be destined for use for food, biomaterials or energy production. Genetic modification means that existing genes are modified or new genes included to give plant varieties desirable characteristics, such as resistance to certain pests or herbicides, or for vitamin fortification. Because only a few genes with known traits are transferred, GM methods are more targeted and faster than traditional breeding. Biotechnology has helped to increase crop productivity by introducing such qualities as disease resistance and increased drought tolerance to the crops. Plant biotechnology is the technique used to manipulate the plants for specific needs or requirement.  In traditional process seed is the major source for germinating a new plant but the advance method is independent that combines multiple needs to get the required traits.
