  • Monoclonal Antibodies - Mechanism, Applications and Challenges ( 9421 reads)   

    The production of monoclonal antibodies was indeed a breakthrough in the world of biotechnology and medical science. The applications and uses of monoclonal antibodies spread through a wide range and in spite of the obstacles and challenges faced, researches and detailed studies are being carried out to solve these and transform this into a technology extremely useful for mankind. - Category: Biotechnology products
  • Monoclonal Antibodies and Their Production ( 4371 reads)   

    Monoclonal antibodies are antibodies produced by a single clone of hybrid cells which is formed by the fusion of an antibody producing spleen cell and a myeloma cell, selected and cultured using special technique. Due to its specific nature, monoclonal antibodies are considered to be the best choice for targeted therapy and are also used for research and in vivo as such. - Category: Biotechnology products
  • Biometrics - The Technology For True Personal Identification ( 3842 reads)   

    Personal identification and authentication has always been necessary for gaining access to restricted zones and for even using personal devices. When traditional identification variables like signature and official documents can be stolen, forged or lost, biometric data like face, fingerprint, iris, veins or behavioral patterns like handwriting, voice, etc. is better for personal identification. - Category: Applications
  • Pharmacogenomics - The New Era of Personalized Medicine ( 5799 reads)   

    Pharmacogenomics is the study of drug response of individuals based on their genetic makeup. The detailed study of genome of an individual reveals the details about the metabolizing capacity, time taken to break down and utilize the drug, etc. which opens a way to create personalized medicine which will be more safe and effective for individuals. - Category: Healthcare
  • Downstream Processing in Biotech Industry ( 17970 reads)   

    Any industrial process will require a sequence of unit operations that are involved in the extraction, separation, concentration and purification of the desired product. Biotech productions, with its wide application in important areas like research, pharmaceuticals, food, etc. demands for highly purified form of products. This has popularized the role and importance of downstream processing, - Category: Others
  • Biotechnology Boom - A Global Perspective ( 3887 reads)   

    The rapid growth of biotechnology research and studies and the gradual mushrooming of small and large biotech clusters in different nations around the world is not only an intentional effort to be world leaders in the novel technology, but also an indirect tryout to boost national economy. Inspite of the extensive applications, its unpredictable nature has led to massive upheaval around the globe. - Category: Others
  • Pharmaceutical Product Development - How Medicines Reach Market ( 4234 reads)   

    Disease and medicines have become an inevitable part of our day to day life. A common man usually is unaware of the back stage developments involved in the discovery, formulation, process development and clinical trials, only after the successful completion of which the medicines finally hits the market. The whole process takes lot of dedicated effort and time and is also very expensive. - Category: Healthcare
  • Biochemical Engineering - Career Prospects and Importance in Industries ( 9914 reads)   

    Biochemical Engineering is a multidisciplinary field that encompasses the areas of biotechnology and chemical engineering, that plays a major role in the large-scale production of biochemical products, by applying the principles of engineering to the activity of living cells. A biochemical engineer conceives, designs, develops and operates economic and environmentally safe biochemical processes. - Category: Careers
  • Bioremediation - A Weapon to Tackle Oil Spills ( 18936 reads)   

    Bioremediation for oil spill cleanup: The release of petroleum hydrocarbons into the environment, especially into oceans can affect the marine ecosystem, birds and human. The action of naturally occurring oil degrading microbes are slow. Bioremediation is the process of using microbes to clean up waste material or pollutants. The addition of exogenous microbes or stimulating indigenous oil eaters can speed up the cleaning up process. - Category: Environmental Biotechnology
  • Gene Therapy - Issues and Ethical Aspects ( 7988 reads)   

    The technology that make it possible for modifying genetic material and the possibility of introduction of these modified DNA into cells of patients using vectors led to the notion of gene therapy, that helps to correct the action of a defective gene. However, the methods involved and clinical trials raise many questions related to ethical issues that demands a detailed discussion with the public. - Category: Issues
  • RNA Interference - The Art of Gene Silencing ( 5059 reads)   

    Small RNA molecules, combined to a RNA induced silencing complex, have the ability to attach to complementary strands of messenger RNA, resulting in the degradation of messenger RNA, blocking its translation and eventually leading to gene silencing. Its targeted gene silencing ability has made it a potential tool in gene therapy and medicine, in addition to other wide applications. - Category: DNA
  • Transposable Elements - The Story of Jumping Genes ( 11800 reads)   

    Transposable elements or transposons are short DNA fragments that can jump from one location of a genome to another inside a cell. They are mainly three types, based on their gene composition and are categorized according to their mode of transposition. Its ability to induce mutations has made them an important tool for genetic studies, researches advancing for its successful use in gene therapy - Category: DNA
  • Respirocytes - A Prognosis From Nanomedicine ( 11834 reads)   

    Respirocytes are artificial red blood cells, a hypothetical Nano machine, proposed by Robert. A. Freitas Jr. in the year 1996. It is a hollow, spherical device, 1 micron in diameter which has extensive applications in medical field like treatment of asphyxia, anemia and other respiratory, neuro-vascular and cardio-vascular surgeries. - Category: Nanotechnology
  • Psychrophilic Enzymes - A Boon to Modern Industry ( 17048 reads)   

    Psychrophilic enzymes are cold active biocatalysts obtained from cold loving microbes. These enzymes have extensive application in various processes in food and dairy industry, textile industry, laundry, etc. Because of its unique optimal growth temperature at cold conditions, it is widely used as alternative for normal mesophilic enzymes in many industrial processes. - Category: Biotech Research
  • Nanobiomagnetism - A New Revolution in Modern Medicine ( 4604 reads)   

    The name Nanobiomagnetism itself implies the combination of magnetism, nanotechnology and life science. It is a branch of science that deals with the application of tiny magnetic particles called Nano magnets in biomedical systems or processes. - Category: Healthcare
