  1. 1. BIOTECHNOLOGY: The Key To Ecuador’s Development By Adriana Cabrera 12th Grade Physics-Mathematics 2012-2013
  2. 2. Biotechnology is the fusion of Biology andTechnologyThe application of Biotechnological techniques tofusion research and development
  3. 3. Biotechnology’s application in Ecuador is essential:1. Advacement of medicine in testing and in treatment2. Growth of agriculture guarantees food security3. Progress of the pharmaceutical field improves human health4. Improvement of the productivity of animals while reducing the enviromental impact from the livestock sector
  4. 4. Medicine: In testing
  5. 5. Medicine: In treatmentHas developed several therapies which can treat inherited human diseases involving defective genes and fight agains incurable diseases.Therapies: Gene TherapyEnzyme Replacement TherapyStem cells therapy
  6. 6. Agriculture: Genetically modified productsExample: Main characteristics: 1. Pink banana (very exotic) 2. Very tasty 3. Presence of seeds in its fruit 4. Small size Musa velutina (pink banana banana)
  7. 7. This pink banana can be genetically modified with Biotechnology These seeds can be eliminated = At the same time, improving its: Its size can be nutritional increased like the quality size of the Resistance to common yellow plant pests like: banana bacteria, virus, fungi, nematodes and other pathogens
  8. 8. Agriculture: Massive production Benefits:  It needs only small explants to produce large quantities of material in relatively short time  Possibily of multiplication during all the year  Low space requirements  Obtaining pathogen- free plants
  9. 9. Biotechnology Pharmaceutical Field:
  10. 10. Biotechnology Pharmaceutical Field: Biotech drugs can helpor cure human diseases. Moreover, a Biotech company is developing a less toxic chemotherapy drugs. It uses synthetic biology to come up with new DNA based drugs trigger cells to produce powerfull cancer killing chemicals.
  11. 11. Biotechnology Pharmaceutical Field: Biotechnology chemicalreactive can be used for fast diagnosis of important humandiseases. Pharyngitis and Rheumatic Heart Disease Diagnosis:• The conventional methods are expensive, time consuming and suffer one or more limitations. But with today’s PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) it takes only 80 minutes to complete overall analysis using mga genes as a specific genetic marker.
  12. 12. Animal Biotechnology: increase growth rateTechniques: Artificial Insimination (AI) Embryo Transfer (ET)Annually more than: 100 million AI are performed in cattle 40 million in pigs 3.3 million in sheep 0.5 million in goats
  13. 13. Animal Biotechnology: Enhance Nutrition and Public HealthPoultry and Livestock resistant to organims: E. coli Streptococcus Clostridium CampylobacterDiseases: Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) or also known as “mad cow”
  14. 14. Animal Biotechnology: Reduce environmental impact fromthe livestock sector
  15. 15. For these reasons:•The government should encourage the creation of laboratories inour country•Ecuadorian universities should provide this career as asynonym of development Instead of promoting the same traditional careers: 1. Law 2. Business Administration 3. Education 4. Medicine 5. Journalism
