Biotechnology – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Posted: at 5:19 pm

"Bioscience" redirects here. For the scientific journal, see BioScience. Biotechnology is the use of living systems and organisms to develop or make useful products, or "any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use" (UN Convention on Biological Diversity, Art. 2).[1] Depending on the tools and applications, it often overlaps with the (related) fields of bioengineering and biomedical engineering. For thousands of years, humankind has used biotechnology in agriculture, food production, and medicine.[2] The term itself is largely believed to have been coined in 1919 by Hungarian engineer Kroly Ereky. In the late 20th and early 21st century, biotechnology has expanded to include new and diverse sciences such as genomics, recombinant gene technologies, applied immunology, and development of pharmaceutical therapies and diagnostic tests.[3] The wide concept of "biotech" or "biotechnology: encompasses a wide range of procedures (and history) for modifying living organisms according to human purposes, going back to domestication of animals, cultivation of plants, and "improvements" to these through breeding programs that employ artificial selection and hybridization. Modern usage also includes genetic engineering as well as cell and tissue culture technologies. The American Chemical Society defines … Continue reading

What is Biotechnology? – BIO | Healing, Fueling and …

Posted: at 5:19 pm

At its simplest, biotechnology is technology based on biology - biotechnology harnesses cellular and biomolecular processes to develop technologies and products that help improve our lives and the health of our planet. We have used the biological processes of microorganisms for more than 6,000 years to make useful food products, such as bread and cheese, and to preserve dairy products. Modern biotechnology provides breakthrough products and technologies to combat debilitating and rare diseases, reduce our environmental footprint, feed the hungry, use less and cleaner energy, and have safer, cleaner and more efficient industrial manufacturing processes. Currently, there are more than 250 biotechnology health care products and vaccines available to patients, many for previously untreatable diseases. More than 13.3 million farmers around the world use agricultural biotechnology to increase yields, prevent damage from insects and pests and reduce farming's impact on the environment. And more than 50 biorefineries are being built across North America to test and refine technologies to produce biofuels and chemicals from renewable biomass, which can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Recent advances in biotechnology are helping us prepare for and meet societys most pressing challenges. Here's how: Biotech is helping toheal the worldby harnessing nature's own toolbox … Continue reading

What is Biotechnology? – Access Excellence @ the National …

Posted: at 5:19 pm

Pamela Peters, from Biotechnology: A Guide To Genetic Engineering. Wm. C. Brown Publishers, Inc., 1993. Biotechnology in one form or another has flourished since prehistoric times. When the first human beings realized that they could plant their own crops and breed their own animals, they learned to use biotechnology. The discovery that fruit juices fermented into wine, or that milk could be converted into cheese or yogurt, or that beer could be made by fermenting solutions of malt and hops began the study of biotechnology. When the first bakers found that they could make a soft, spongy bread rather than a firm, thin cracker, they were acting as fledgling biotechnologists. The first animal breeders, realizing that different physical traits could be either magnified or lost by mating appropriate pairs of animals, engaged in the manipulations of biotechnology. What then is biotechnology? The term brings to mind many different things. Some think of developing new types of animals. Others dream of almost unlimited sources of human therapeutic drugs. Still others envision the possibility of growing crops that are more nutritious and naturally pest-resistant to feed a rapidly growing world population. This question elicits almost as many first-thought responses as there are … Continue reading

Biotech Suffers Record Exit at Largest ETF Signaling Turn

Posted: at 5:18 pm

Investors pulled a record $372 million from the biggest biotechnology exchange traded fund in its worst day of redemptions ever. The withdrawals from the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF on April 4 were the most since its 2001 inception, with 7.5 percent of the funds $4.98 billion in total assets leaving what is the biggest biotech-focused ETF, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. It follows a lengthy run-up in biotechnology industry stocks. Now, that momentum money is being sucked out, said Geoffrey Porges, an analyst with Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. in New York, in a telephone interview. Health-care ETFs have boomed this year, attracting more deposits than any other sector and adding $3.98 billion since January 1. That increase has been spurred by a biotechnology sector that last year gained 74 percent, compared with a 30 percent increase in the Standard & Poors 500 Index. ETFs are investment funds that can hold stocks, bonds, commodities or other securities that trade on an exchange and typically track an index. Theyve grown in popularity among investors because of their tradability, low cost relative to mutual funds and tax efficiency. Recently, investors have begun to question whether biotechnology stocks are in a bubble … Continue reading
