Biotechnology - Bringing Out the Best in Pharmacy

With the advent of science and research, technology plays an important role in our life, touching every aspect of it. Biotechnology is no exception to this. Biotechnology, is a research based stream of science that covers biological sciences like genetics, microbiology, animal cell culture, molecular biology, biochemistry, embryology, cell biology and other fields like chemical engineering, bioprocess engineering, information technology and bio-robotics, which are beyond the purview of biological sciences. Continuous research, development and the need for betterment is an integral part of Biotechnology. Scientists, researchers, students of medicine, and pharmaceutical firms are always in pursuit of inventions and modifications that will simplify lives further.

Biotechnology has revolutionized agriculture with application of genetic engineering, animal cell culture, plant cell culture and other categories of science. Better production in terms of quality and quantity has been achieved. The nutritional value has been enhanced by modification; spoilage of perishable items like vegetables and fruits has been minimized. Going further, even the taste, appearance and texture can be altered through biotechnology. It also enables farmers to reduce fertilizers, pesticides and other agrochemicals to protect crops from pests and weeds. For this purpose scientists introduce herbicides that do not damage crops. Currently, studies on developing vaccines and insulin from plants, is being carried out. Such cost-effective measures will surely be a boon for developing countries of the world.


Formerly, Biotechnology was restricted to agriculture, but now it has expanded to other fields like medicine. From discovery of drugs to determining methods of drug usage, Biotechnology plays an important role. Genetic diseases and other illnesses like hepatitis B, hepatitis C, cancer, arthritis, hemophilia, bone fractures, multiple sclerosis, and cardiovascular disorders can be treated through Biotechnology. With its aid, you can manufacture effective and inexpensive medicines.

Another branch of Biotechnology is Genetic Testing that has helped researchers in decoding DNA, studying its structure and so forth. Prenatal diagnostic screening, Cancer Screening and Carrier screening is facilitated by genetic testing. Forensic labs are now equipped with the latest devices and testing equipments, that help resolving criminal cases. Many experiments and clinical studies undertaken, have further thrown light on DNA, RNA and other complex molecular structures.

Apart from that, Biotechnology also helps in the conservation and protection of environment. An ever-increasing demand for fuel has caused depletion of oil resources. Biotechnology has also resulted in the evolution of Biofuels that are derived from sugarcane, plant vegetable oils, animal fats and recycled greases, thereby providing a cleaner and greener environment.

With each passing day, Biotechnology with its innovations and applications improves quality of life. Environmental degradation, over-dependence on natural resources and other issues that are grappling the world today, are steadily being resolved. With better medicines, finer treatments and sophisticated medical centers, the average life expectancy has also increased.

In a nutshell, Biotechnology has widened the horizons of modern science and improved every aspect of human life.
