Biotechnology can be broadly defined as "using organisms or their products for commercial purposes." As such, (traditional) biotechnology has been practices since the beginning of records history. It has been used to: bake bread, brew alcoholic beverages, and breed food crops or domestic animals. But recent developments in molecular biology have given biotechnology new meaning, new prominence, and new potential. It is modern biotechnology that has captured the attention of the public. Modern biotechnology can have a dramatic effect on the world economy and society. One example of modern biotechnology is genetic engineering. Genetic engineering is the process of transferring individual genes between organisms or modifying the genes in an organism to remove or add a desired trait or characteristic. Through genetic engineering, genetically modified crops or organisms are formed. These GM crops or GMOs are used to produce biotech-derived foods. It is this specific type of modern biotechnology, genetic engineering that seems to generate the most attention and concern by consumers and consumer groups.
Genetic engineering in biotechnology stimulated hopes for both therapeutic proteins, drugs and biological organisms themselves, such as seeds, pesticides, engineered yeasts, and modified human cells for treating genetic diseases. The field of genetic engineering remains a heated topic of discussion in today’s society with the advent of gene therapy, stem cell research, cloning, and genetically-modified food. Biotechnology is the applied science and has made advances in two major areas, viz., molecular biology and production of industrially important bio-chemical. The scientists are now diverting themselves toward biotechnological companies; this has caused the development of many biotechnological industries.In USA alone more than 225 companies have been established and successfully working, like Biogen, Cetus, Geneatech, Hybritech, etc. In world, USA, Japan, and many countries of Europe are leaders in biotechnological researchers encouraged by industrialists.
The growth of biotechnology leads to increasing popularity towards plant-based drugs in pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, functional foods and even cosmaceuticals in the global market. Thus biotechnology research could help the country carve a niche for itself in modern biotechnology including Genomics and bio-informatics, Agriculture and Plant biotechnology, Molecular medicine, Environment and biodiversity and bio-fuel and bio-instrumentation.The future of biotechnology seems to be very strong and bright. Scientists have come to believe that biotechnology is a boon for human society and it has the great potential to solve many of the issues. Scientist now believe that biotechnology will provide a wonderful tool to solve many of the above mentioned problems and that in future we are going to enjoy to many things from biotechnology. This congress will serve as a suitable platform to analyze and discuss various benefits, man is likely to derive biotechnology in future.
We provide Biotechnology course in two levels as Professional Designation for undergraduate students and Advance PG Program for Graduated Students. The details of the courses are as below:
The above program curriculum will help students to ensure that the following job opportunities are waiting for them. We can conclude that requirement of biotechnologists professionals are the necessity for pharma Industries, food technology industries and marine biotechnology industry. For globalization of the world, it is most needed area for all national & international biotech related companies. The below Pie-Chart predicts an average data of placements in biotechnological industry over a year globally.
