Biotechnology, Time To Take A Closer Look!

Biotechnology and nanotechnology are among the fastest growing industries today. In fact, they may be one of the most broad reaching technologies ever in human history. The list of players includes, but is not limited to, the medical profession; agricultural, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industries; processed food companies; and alternative energy resourcing.

On top of all this sit the world investors- biotech is big business with a lot of money to be made as GMOs, genetically modified organisms, find their way into our everyday lives. This series of articles will introduce you to the world of genetic engineering and advanced nano materials that are in your environment, your medicines, your lotions and fact it is with 100% certainty that you ate a vegetable or fruit that is altered at its genetic DNA level if you bought it in a regular grocery store. In and of itself, this information doesn't mean any of this a bad thing; however, with the staggering increase of sudden onset illnesses and unexplained super bugs, it is time to do some research of our own...

Biotechnology, How did it all start?

Gregor Mendel is widely known as the “father of genetics”. Born in 1822, he was a nineteenth-century Catholic monk from Brno, a city in what is now the Czech Republic. Here is where modern genetic research was born. Read more by clicking the link on the above title.

Genetic Engineering is Big Business

In 1980, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a genetically-altered micro-organism could be patented. With that door now open to profit, private genetic research soared.

Most people think positively about the advancements in biotechnology in areas like medicine which is indeed a big part of the industry. Leading geneticists are hot on the trail to eradicating cancer and the latest in cloning has successfully grown body parts like the human ear. Read more by clicking the link on the above title.

Biotechnology Gets The Philosophical Question

Our lifestyle today is racing against illusory clocks that seem to dictate our mortality and directly affect our need for 'time'. Can we pause a moment and take a philosophical look at what is going on around us?

One would hope that the true value our 'history' can provide for us is in the idea of learning from our past mistakes. If a mistake can take us through a process of discovery and growth then it really isn't a mistake but a valuable lesson, right? Read more by clicking the link on the above title.

Introduction To Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology, also referred to as nanotech, is the science and technology of building devices, such as electronic circuits, and controlling molecular structures that are less than 100 nanometers in size. One nanometer is equal to one billionth of a meter. Nanotechnology is literally invisible to the naked eye.

Nanotechnology is a newly emerging and very promising area for business investors and the struggle has begun on who owns the 'nano bank' of patents. There is a lot of debate on the future implications of nanotechnologies. Read more by clicking the link on the above title.
