Red Biotechnology

  20 Major Applications Of Red Biotechnology Red Biotechnology is a branch of modern biotechnology T he term Biotechnology was introduced by a Hungarian engineer, Karl Ereky in 1917. Ereky defined biotechnology as “ all lines of work by which products are produced from raw materials with the aid of living things”. Biotechnology is a multidisciplinary application. Biotechnological research has a wide range of applications that are shown in medical and health science, agriculture science, and environmental science. Bio-Pharmaceutical is known as Red- Biotechnology. This branch of biotechnology is related to health care. The main utilization of this branch is shown in the field of medicine. Red biotechnology helps to improve the quality of life. Red-Biotechnology has a wide range of applications. Many applications are shown in medical and health science, genetic engineering, gene therapy, and many more fields related to the medical line. 20 Major Applications of Red Biotechnology are: 1.

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

20 enzymes that are used in the food & Beverages industry

  20 enzymes that are used in the food & Beverages industry Enzymes name and its uses E nzymes are biological molecules typically made up of proteins, it is a fundamental task of proteins. The enzyme is very sensitive in nature. many physiochemical changes in the enzyme are affecting by changes in pH, temperature, substrate concentration, etc.  The enzyme has a wide range of applications. There are several uses of an enzyme in the biofuel industry, biological detergent, culinary uses, dairy industry, molecular biology, paper industry, personal care, starch industry, food production, food processing, and food preservation.  As per recent estimates, a great majority of industrially produced enzymes are useful in processes related to foods(45%), detergents (35%), textiles ( 10%), and leather(3%).   An enzyme is a biocatalyst that increases the rate of a chemical reaction without itself undergoing any change, Virtually all cellular reactions are mediated by the enzyme. The enzyme has s
