Biotechnology is a broad area of biology, involving the use of living systems and organisms to develop or make ing on the tools and applications, it often overlaps with related scientific fields.

In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, biotechnology has expanded to include new and diverse sciences, such as genomics, recombinant gene techniques, applied immunology, and. By almost any standard, social philosopher Francis Fukuyama's "Our Posthuman Future" is an important book.

In it, he explores near-term breakthroughs in neuropharmacology (i.e., Prozac, Ritalin, Zoloft), genetic screening and the looming prospect of germ-line genetic engineering, which could conceivably fracture the human race beyond recognition a la Aldous Huxley's cautionary masterpiece /5(37).

Biocatalysis fulfils many key criteria of green chemistry, but this raises the question: how efficient are such production methods and how important is biotechnology for greener industrial chemistry today. This review summarizes the advantages, disadvantages and potential uses of biocatalysis to.

In Huxley's future, babies are born in labs, and society discourages individual action and thought. Although the world is peaceful, the protagonist,  Bernard Marx, wonders if there's something more. The iGEM teams are a growing source of creative ideas and prototypes for future biotechnology products in a large number of global challenge “tracks” from a broad range of applications including therapeutics, energy, environment, food and nutrition, information processing, art and design, hardware, and software.

doi: / biotechnology: its potential impact on interrelationships among agriculture, industry, and society Lawrence Busch and William B. Lacy The last several years have witnessed the beginning of a major change in world agriculture. Biotechnology is still a relatively new field with great potential for driving medical progress.

Much of that progress is likely to result from advances in personalized medicine. This new treatment paradigm aims to ensure that patients get the therapies best suited to their specific conditions, genetic makeups, and other health characteristics. Fukuyama has been one of my favorites since "The End of History." Glad to see history has started again and science is the new narrative.

"Posthuman" continues to demonstrate that the author has a very comprehensive view of current insights in many fields and puts them in a cohesive picture that rings true/5(19). The big impact of microalgal biotechnology on our future society is outlined as a desirable consequence of scientific progress.

This book will allow protagonists in academia and industry as well as decision makers in industry and politics to get a clear picture of current possibilities and future trends in microalgal biotechnology. Biotechnology, the use of biology to solve problems and make useful products.

The most prominent area of biotechnology is the production of therapeutic proteins and other drugs through genetic engineering.

Learn more about the development and applications of biotechnology in this article. Biotechnology also offers considerable potential to animal agriculture as a means to reduce nutrients and odors from manure as well as the volume of manure produced.

Development and adoption of these biotechnologies will contribute to a more sustainable environment. Advances in plant biotechnology also have had a huge positive impact on society. To know about the background of Biotechnology and how it has been evolved you should definitely try to read following books Genentech: The Beginnings of Biotech Genentech is considered the founder of the Biotech industry in the late 80s.

It starte. Biotechnology is a precious gift to the 21st century as it has drastically changed the future of our planet. Biotech has proven its importance in almost every field and it holds the ability to change the world.

Biotechnology has fixed several problems associated with ethics and has become a tool for the ultra advanced era.5/5(1). To some extent, a global crisis is the ultimate bullshit filter. You can bullshit your way through a lot of things. Things like politics, economics, theology, and philosophy can all be twisted and obscured by a skilled bullshitter who has little concern for the truth, ethics, or decency.

Predictive, preventive and personalized medicine will transform science, industry, education and society in ways that we are only beginning to imagine.” In the future, doctors may be able to reveal which genetic diseases you might develop later in life by a single droplet of blood.

Dr. Michio Kaku, professor of theoretical physics at the City University of New York and author of "The Future of the Mind:" "In the next 10 years, we will see the gradual transition from an Internet to a brain-net, in which thoughts, emotions, feelings, and memories might be transmitted instantly across the planet.
