An efficient one-step site-directed deletion, insertion, single and multiple-site plasmid mutagenesis protocol Authors: Huanting Liu and James H Naismith. Biotechnology is best known for its huge role in the field of medicine, and is also used in other areas such as food and fuel. Biotechnology involves understanding how living organisms function at the molecular level, so it combines a number of disciplines including biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics, science and technology.
Modern biotechnology continues to make very significant contributions to extending the human lifespan and improving the quality of life through numerous ways, including providing products and therapies to combat diseases, generating higher crop yields , and using biofuels to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Biotechnology in its basic form has existed for thousands of years, dating back to an era when humans first learned to produce bread, beer and wine using the natural process of fermentation.
For centuries, the principles of biotechnology were restricted to agriculture , such as harvesting better crops and improving yields by using the best seeds, and breeding livestock. Biotechnology took off from the s, spurred by a better understanding in the post-war period of cell function and molecular biology.
Every decade since then produced major breakthroughs in biotechnology. The biotechnology sector has grown by leaps and bounds since the s.
