About Medical Biotechnology
Medical biotechnology is an application of biotechnology that endorses the lives of individuals every day. Medical biotechnology also called as red biotechnology is the use of organisms and organisms-isolated materials for research and to produce diagnostic and therapeutic products that help to treat and prevent human diseases. The aim of medical biotechnology is the Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment of diseases. The principles of medical biotechnology are applied in pharmacology, gene therapy, stem cells and tissue engineering. Medical biotechnology is a rapidly evolving field integrating knowledge obtained in molecular, cell biological, genetic and immunological scientific areas.
The medical biotechnology field has helped bring to market microbial pesticides, insect-resistant crops, and environmental clean-up techniques. Numerous examples of discoveries in the field of medical biotechnology include growth hormone and insulin. This discovery was the result of research studies related to deoxyribonucleic acid. Many scientists in the medical biotechnology field study genetic engineering which involves isolating, identifying, and sequencing the human genes to determine their functions.
