20 medicinal plant species used for the production of secondary metabolites

  Secondary metabolites obtained from medicinal plant species by using Tissue culture Techniques 20 medicinal plant species used for the production of secondary metabolites P lants play a dominant role in the introduction of new therapeutics agents and also drugs from the higher plants continue to occupy an important niche in modern medicine. Pharmaceuticals companies depend largely upon materials procured from naturally occurring strands that are being rapidly depleted because of the use of parts like roots, barks, wood, stem, and the whole plant in the case of herbs. This poses a definite threat to the genetic stocks and the diversity of medicinal plants.  Plant tissue culture is an alternative method of propagation and is being used widely for the commercial propagation of a large number of plant species, including many medicinal plants. For some years, there has been great interest in the exploitation of plant cell cultures to produce fine chemicals. Plant material enriched in seco

20 Selected Definitions of Biotechnology

20 Selected Definitions of Biotechnology Definitions of Biotechnology  B iotechnology is the perfect combination of biology and technology(Bio +Technology) actually it is the combination of these two fields that are applied to benefits for industrial areas, our medical field, environment health, many more. The term, biotechnology is of recent origin, the discipline itself is very old.  Different scientists and researchers have different views to explain the term biotechnology, here are 20 different definitions that explain biotechnology. These definitions are reproduced below with the view orient the readers to the nature and scope of the discipline.  1. Biotechnology is a fusion of biology and technology means the use of biological agents or their components for generating useful products services. 2. The applications of scientific and engineering principles to the processing of materials by biological agents to provide goods and services. 3. Any technological application that uses bi

Green biotechnology

  17 Most Important Applications Of Green biotechnology Agrobiotechnology  Green biotechnology related to plants of improving both the quality and quantity of plants. The main goal of green biotechnology is the production of an improved variety of plants, with the help of biotechnology-based techniques that should be environmentally friendly solutions.  The main aim of green biotechnology is to tackle food security issues and reduce the environmental footprint of the industry. Green biotechnology can improve the global food situation.  17 Most Important Applications Of Green Biotechnology :  1. Micropropagation  One of the most important applications of green biotechnology is the micropropagation of plant species. this technique has attained the status of a large plant-based industry. Micropropagation is the true type of propagation of selected genotypes using small pieces of tissues which can stay as an important technique for rapid production of many commercially important plants lik
