    • Introduction to Biotechnology DONE BY: SINDHU PRIYA.S I-ECE ‘B’
    • WHAT IS BIOTECHNOLOGY Using scientific methods with organisms to produce new products or new forms of organisms
    • Biotechnology Biotechnology helps to meet our basic needs. Food, clothing, shelter, health and safety Improvements by using science
    • Agricultural View Milk production New horticultural and ornamental plants Wildlife, aquaculture, natural resources and environmental management
    • Organismic Biotech Study and use natural genetic variations Cloning is an example of organismic biotech
    • Molecular Biotech Molecular Biotechnology is about the application of biological science at the molecular level.
    • Biotech examples  Medicine  Agriculture  Environment  Forestry  Food and beverage processing
    • Medicine  Some new developments delve into the hereditary material of humans known as gene therapy
    •  Environmental biotechnology is biotechnology that is applied to and used to study the natural environment  Environmental biotechnology can simply be described as "the optimal use of nature, in the form of plants, animals, bacteria, fungi and algae, to produce renewable energy, food and nutrients
    • Ag and Forestry  Plant biotech  Animal biotech
    • Plant biotech  Improve plants and the products produced from them  Insect and disease resistance  Engineered to have desired characteristics
    • Animal Biotech  Improve animals or the products they produce  Animals may be used to produce products that promote human health
    • Food and Beverages  Use of technology in producing and processing  Some biotech principles have been employed for hundreds of years  Yeast in baking bread
    • Biotechnology  Helps meet human needs  Used to make products more useful or desirable  Ex: conversion of milk into cheese or yogurt
    • Efficiency  Must keep the cost of improving products as low as possible  Biotech results in greater efficiency
    • Health Promoting Foods  Food with unique traits  Some contain therapeutants  Some designed with nutrient enrichment
    • Safety  Consumers want foods to provide needed nutrients and in some cases, enhanced foods  Do not want side effects from those enhanced foods
    • THANK YOU FOR LISTENING
