What is potassium cyanide??
A chemical compound with the chemical formula KCN is commonly known as the Potassium cyanide. This is a colorless crystalline compound, highly soluble in water and is similar in appearance as that of sugar. Potassium cyanide is considered to be highly toxic in nature. Potassium cyanide is considered to be one of the most deadly compounds being discovered till date.
DNA, deoxyribonucleic acid it is the backbone of all living creatures on earth. It is a molecule, which is having a double helical structure and encoded with genetic instructions. It leads to the functioning of all living beings including viruses. DNA profiling is done by the forensic scientists. It depicts the nature of the DNA and act as a person identifier. By knowing the genomic sequences a scientist could easily predict the DNA of the person.
Fountain of youth is referred to a spring. If a person drinks the water of it, he or she can easily restore the youth again in themselves. In his writing Herodotus has also mentioned about this concept. This has become a kind of legend and many a famous author like Homer or Shakespeare have also discussed about in the literature. Now the biggest question is that whether there is really any kind of such fountain on this earth or not.
Biotechnology simply means to develop or to make useful products with the help of using living systems. Over the years mankind has used biotechnology in several sectors like agriculture, food production and medicine. There are several sectors in which biotechnology can affect severely.
Biotech for human enhancement is the most profitable industry in the 21st century. Careers are influenced by genetic heritage. It is said that by 2020 people will be able to decipher human genome Continue reading “Top trends for Biotechnology” »
Genetic disorders are becoming common nowadays due to stressful modern lifestyle. Latest technologies are the added values to create many genetic disorders. To overcome the disorders, Gene therapy is a blessing. In order to compensate abnormal genes and make a good gene, genetic material is introduced into cells. In this way, mutated gene will act as a normal gene. Let us see in detail

Very soon you would see models sashaying down the ramp wearing dresses made from Ingeo which is a fiber made from genetically engineered crop. All thanks to Biotechnology Industry Organization which is trying to use fashion statement in order to rebuild its image galaxy s3 halterung. Slowly and steadily biotechnology is playing a pivotal role in the apparel industry which is waking up to its customers’ concern regarding the environment and reliance of the country on foreign oil for making synthetic fabrics like nylon and polyester. On the other hand this is a concern among environmental activists who are opposing GM crops of any kind and Ingeo still supports GM crops. Let see how far these clothes go.
USDA’a Advisory Committee has prepared a report titled ‘Opportunities and Challenges in Agricultural Biotechnology: The Decade Ahead’ which talks about the advancements made by agricultural biotechnology in the first decade and the future of it over the next ten years. As of now it is difficult to predict which modern biotechnology generated animals or plants we would be able to see in the market in the next ten years but some of the possibilities have been stated in the report and they have been mentioned below: (1) Genetically engineered plant varieties that provide improved human nutrition (e.g., soybeans enriched in omega-3 fatty acids) (2) Products designed for use in improved animal feeds (providing better nutritional balance by increasing the concentration of essential amino acids often deficient in some feed components, increased nutrient density, or more efficient utilization of nutrients such as phosphate that could provide environmental benefits) (3) Crops resistant to drought and other environmental stresses such as salinity (4) Crops resistant to pests and diseases (e.g., fusarium-resistant wheat; chestnut-blight resistant chestnut; plum pox resistance in stone fruit; various insect resistant crops) (5) Additional crops containing a number of transgenic traits incorporated in the same plant (stacked traits) (6) Crops engineered to produce pharmaceuticals, such as vaccines and antibodies (7) Crops engineered for particular industrial uses (e.g., crops having improved processing attributes such as increased starch content, producing useful enzymes that can be extracted for downstream industrial processes, or modified to have higher content of an energy-rich starting material such as oil for improved utilization as biofuel) (8) Transgenic animals for food, or for production of pharmaceuticals or industrial products (e.g., transgenic salmon engineered for increased growth rate to maturity, transgenic goats producing human serum factors in their milk, and pigs producing the enzyme phytase in their saliva for improved nutrient utilization and manure with reduced phosphorus content essays.
Do you like being kept waiting for your appointment despite the fact that you have reached the clinic on time? Certainly not and to add to your woes the receptionist at the clinic gives the same old answer, ‘Please wait for sometime, the doctor is busy’. In order to overcome this trouble, a new biometric technology has been installed at the University of Manitoba, Canada which would enable orthodontic patients to sign in with their fingerprints. Now the receptionist is out of the picture and all the patient need to do is touch a fingerprint keypad on the front desk and the message directly reaches the workstation of the doctor informing him that the patient is waiting. In case a patient has been waiting for more than fifteen minutes, the doctor would be informed that the patient has been waiting for a longer duration of time. This would certainly end the irritation of patients who are forced to wait for a longer duration of time at the clinic in order to meet the doctor.
A recent research undertaken by US researchers has shown that small farmers in South Africa have certainly gained from genetically modified (GM) maize in a similar fashion as that of large scale cultivators. These revelations are truly opposite of what anti biotech activists have said. They say that GM crops would only benefit the rich farmers. Even a recent Mexican study also claims that agricultural biotechnology would certainly help poor farmers. It’s being said that the GM maize would certainly benefit the farmers as the DNA of the maize would be inserted with a gene from the Newcastle virus and chickens consuming that would be able to produce antibodies against the virus. In developing countries livelihood of a number of families depend on poultry and this maize would certainly benefit them and avoid the need for buying expensive vaccines for their birds. Will it act as a boon or a bane? Time will tell.
