‘Sunrise Technology’

A technology based on Biology.
Biotechnology was practiced since ages at a macro-level like growing crops, raising animals, use of biological processes of microorganisms. Later understanding of biology reached a point where we could use the smallest part of organism like biological molecules part (DNA, RNA, Enzymes, etc.) this gave rise to the Modern Biotechnology. “To use cellular and bio molecular processes to solve problems or make useful products in addition to using whole organisms.” Biotechnology provides a new field to improve human life. It gives newer option for better food, higher field, life saving drugs, energy saving options, clean energy solutions and better understanding and function of the environment and life. Biotechnology has spread itself in energy sector it carries with in an untouched science, out of reach of common man in every way. Passionate Biotechnology research, innovation and business are being carried out in energy sector. Biotechnology has been applied in every sector as; 1) Green and Animal Biotechnology. 2) Red Biotechnology (Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals) 3) White Biotechnology (Industrial Biotechnology) 4) Blue Biotechnology (Marine Biotechnology) 5) Bioinformatics 6) Forensic 7) Biological engineering 8) Bioremediation and Biodegradation 9) Bio weapons Biotechnology is being supported not only by biology but various technologies and tools like; 1) Gel electrophoresis 2) ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immuno Sorbent Assay) 3) Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) 4) Cloning technology 5) Stem Cell technology 6) Gene therapy 7) Recombinant DNA technology 8) Genomic tools 9) Biosensors 10) Nano Biotechnology Above all Biotechnology is a promising sector, and efforts at Global level and National level, have contributed significantly, to the rise and evolution of this knowledge sector.
