The production of medicines through the use of genetically altered organisms has generally been welcomed. Critics of DNA fear that disease-producing, organisms used in some DNA experiments might develop extremely infectious forms that could result to worldwide
These attacks just aggravate with the use of WMDs. Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda organization is one of the examples of a terrorist group that uses nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons for mass destruction. It even is continuing to develop and use such weapons as well as making attempts in obtaining radioactive material for a radiological weapon. All of these types of weapons of mass destruction discussed above prove to be very dangerous to our society and environment. In the further sections it will be made clear as to what changes have taken place in the production, development and usage of such havoc-causing weapons and how it is slowly becoming a part of all the
As a consequence of the constant development of science and biotechnology, in the last couple of years, scientists have discovered some of the mysteries of this marvelous process. Now a day, it is even possible to reverse, in some cells the process of ageing. However, new challenges arise regarding the management and application of this new biotechnology. The purpose of this essay is to examine ageing as a biotechnology by discussing the positive and negative impact it might has. In this essay the advantages and disadvantages of ageing will be discussed.
Biotechnology can be defined as the use of microorganisms, plants or animal cells or components to produce products and processes useful to humans. The term ‘Biotechnology’ was coined by Karoly Ereky in 1919. Biotechnology essentially deals with industrial scale production of biopharmaceutical and biological. The application of biotechnology include therapeutics, diagnostics , genetically modified crops for agriculture, processed food, bioremediation, waste treatment and energy production. Biotechnology have the following three critical research area • To provide the best catalyst in the form of improved organism, usually a microbe or pure enzyme.
Biological agents are easy to develop as weapons. They are more lethal than chemical weapons, less expensive and more difficult to detect than nuclear weapons. Biological agents are microorganisms that are found in nature, but there is a possibility to modify these organisms to increase their virulence, make them resistant to current antibiotics or vaccines, or to enhance the ability to be disseminated into the environment. Biological agents are attractive alternative to conventional weapons because of their relatively low costs, their relative accessibility, and the relative ease in which they could be produced, delivered, and avoid detection. Their use, or even threatened use, is potentially capable of producing widespread social disruption.
This type of medicine has many subfields that are specialised for specific purposes such as genomic pharmaceuticals that specialises in making medicine fit for a specific genotype. There are many advantages to adopting genomic medicine into hospitals around the world but there are also many disadvantages such as the large cost to fund genomic medicine. This is why it is more effective to use genomic medicine in more developed countries at this time. Medical professionals are working towards making genomic medicine less expensive to practice and more accessible for all types of people.

Environment and biotechnology have a deep and a strong relation in the present era. It was not a NEW area of interest because of the same old techniques of composting, landfills and water treatments. But until the addition and incorporation of some disciplines like biochemistry, molecular biology, ecology, environmental engineering and microbiology, it majorly evolved as NEW area of interest, making up the ENVIRONMENTAL BIOTECHNOLOGY.  This combinational field of different sciences has numerous goals, out of which some are being presently practiced, some have been efficiently practiced in the past and some have to be practiced in the near future. These objectives and goals are countless but some of them may include : • Improvised treatments of wastewaters of different industries, the efficient effluent
All this advancement and importance of biotechnology or genetic engineering is clearly notable after introduction of GMOs in foods and crops. No doubt field is vast and huge and very much developed but there is always a room for improvement and betterment. That’s why I have chosen research in this field of Biotechnology as my first career goal. Research is my past present and future and to achieve this dream to be a researcher they say it is necessary to be a PhD. But right now there is a question that haunts me and that is
Any high tech application that uses biological systems, living organisms or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use can be encircled under science of biotech. In the field of biotechnology the most efficient methods and techniques are studied, developed, and applied to get useful end-products for the human society by using viable micro-organisms, cells, and tissues of plants or animals, or even certain functional components of their organisms. The wide concept of biotechnology encompasses a wide range of procedures for modifying living organisms according to human purposes. New tools and products developed by biotechnologists are useful in research, agriculture, industry, and the clinic. Modern usage also includes genetic engineering as well as cell and tissue culture technologies.
