Research and Advancements in Biotechnology

March 2, 2013


Biotechnology, simply called as biotech 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”. It is a field of applied biology that involves the use of living organisms and bioprocesses in engineering, technology, medicine and other fields that consume bio-products, that are used in The technology involves procedures for modifying living organisms based on human purposes – going back to domestication of animals, cultivation of plants, and improvements to these through breeding programs that employ artificial selection and hybridization. The approaches to biotechnology are discussed at the OMICS Publishing Group conference on Biotechnology.

Indeed, the cultivation of plants may be viewed as the earliest biotechnological enterprise. Modern methods of farming and crop cultivation are discussed at the Scientific Conference on Biotechnology by OMICS Publishing Group

Biotechnology also draws on the pure biological sciences. The biological sciences are genetics, microbiology, animal cell culture, molecular biology, biochemistry, embryology and cell biology).  The concepts also borrow principles from outside the sphere of biology, which includes chemical engineering, bioprocess engineering, bioinformatics and biorobotics. This makes biotechnology an interesting domain and individual topics can be dealt by the speakers at OMICS Conference on biotechnology.

In the early twentieth century scientists gained a greater understanding of microbiology and explored ways of manufacturing specific products. In 1917, Chaim Weizmann first used a pure microbiological culture in an industrial process, used for manufacturing corn starch using Clostridium acetobutylicum, to produce acetone. Biotechnology has also led to the development of antibiotics. In 1928, Alexander Fleming discovered the mold Penicillium. Since then, many new studies and formulations in biotechnology have appeared, with many experts and delegates converging to talk about the same at the OMICS Conference of Biotechnology.

OMICS Publishing Group is now inviting the people all over the globe for the 4th meet. The previous three conferences on Biotechnology which were held at Hyderabad, India and Philadelphia, USA have explained Research & Advancements in Biotechnology, gained so much of interest for eminent scientists all over the world in Biotechnology. Now it is the time for the 4th World Congress on Biotechnology on September 23-25, 2013 mainly focuses on Unveiling the Current Frontiers in the Field of Biotechnology which will be held in Raleigh-North Carolina, USA.
