Role Of DNA in biotechnology

Allows scientists to look at the genes of plants and can transfer those genes of plants to another plant.

The ability to extract or isolate DNA from cells and tissues has allowed huge advances in biotechnology.

Biotechnology used in DNA testing

Biotechnology is synonymous with genetic engineering because the genes of an organism are changed during the process and the DNA is recombined.

Biotechnology used in the health industry & in making medicines

Concerned with human health, specifically with the diagnosis of health risks. Biotechnology products and processes are part of the human medicine market served by the pharmaceutical industry

Jobs

Medicine: Nursing

Perform physical exams and health histories

Conduct research in support of improved practice and patient outcomes

Interpret patient information and make critical decisions about needed actions

Administer medication, wound care, and numerous other personalized interventions


Agriculture: Farmer

Farmers run establishments that produce crops , livestock, and dairy products.To fight weeds, farmers have several genetically-engineered options to use.


Food Science: Nutrition scientist

Investigates the metabolic physiological responses of the body to foods and nutrients. They may use expertise from from the fields of molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, and genetics.



Genetics: Biochemists

Scientists who learn the chemistry of living organisms. Their work mainly involves studying the chemical combinations and reactions involved in metabolism, reproduction, development, and inheritance. Other biochemists carry out basic research that develops scientific awareness about the chemistry of living organisms.
