Biotechnology means any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms, or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use. For instance, biotechnology is applied to improve or facilitate cellular processes such as energy metabolism, gene transfer between unrelated species, or the engineering of enzymes for large scale production of drugs.

With its spring up in the world pharmaceutical market, monoclonal antibody has become one of the pillar products in biotechnology industry...
Wouldn’t it be nice to detect cancer from readily available samples such as blood or urine? Well, we might not need to wait any longer.
This technology should help solve the puzzles of cancer, Alzheimer’s, atherosclerosis and infectious diseases.
In studies that could be vital to an expanding field of industrial biotechnology, scientists at the Center for Biosystems Research are learning to censor what E.coli bacteria are 'talking' about.
Researchers have identified a way to increase the oil in tobacco plant leaves, which may be the next step in using the plants for biofuel.
A breed of pea seeds has been created that contains antibodies against coccidiosis
A team of scientists from Houston's Texas Medical Center this week unveiled a new technique for growing 3-D cell cultures, a technological leap from the flat petri dish that could save millions of dollars in drug-testing costs.
Inside, the body's own stem cells switched on to close gap
Farmers throughout the world spend an estimated $36 billion a year to buy seeds for crops, especially those with sought after traits such as hardiness and pest-resistance.
Each cusp of our teeth is regulated by genes which carefully control the development.
A new, versatile method to significantly improve the detection of trace chemicals important in such areas as national security, human health and the environment.
Many women live with breast cancer that does not respond to standard medical treatment, a condition that researchers want to change by aggressively targeting specific genes.
Scientists in California are reporting use of a first-of-its-kind approach to craft genetically engineered microbes...
In the future, you may snuggle up in warm, cozy sweats made of chicken feathers or jeans made of wheat
Researchers in Nevada are reporting that waste coffee grounds can provide a cheap, abundant, and environmentally friendly source of biodiesel fuel for powering cars and trucks.
Optimization of an E. coli L-rhamnose-inducible expression vector: test of various genetic module combinations
A capable expression vector is mainly characterized by its production efficiency, stability and induction response. These features can be influenced by a variation of modifications and versatile genetic modules.
Cellulose Binding Domains (CBD) were conjugated with fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC).
Efficient and reproducible generation of high-expressing, stable human cell lines without need for antibiotic selection
A new method for generating high and stable protein expressing cell lines based on human amniocytes without the requirement of antibiotic selection.
Researchers at the California Institute of Technology have developed a novel way to churn out large quantities of drugs, including antiplaque toothpaste additives, antibiotics, nicotine, and even morphine, using mini biofactories--in yeast.
Michigan State University scientists, armed with a half-million-dollar federal grant, are creating an easily accessible, Web-based genomic database of information on crops that can be used to make ethanol.
