Department of Biotechnology
Biotechnology is the application of scientific and engineering principles for the processing of materials by microorganisms (e.g. bacteria, fungi, algae, protozoa and viruses) or Plant and Animal cells to create useful products or processes. The microbes utilized may be natural isolates or genetically engineered using recombinant DNA methods. For example, most antibiotics come from microbial fermentations involving a group of organism called actinomycetes. Yeasts are used in baking, in the production of alcohol for beverages and in fuel production (gasohol). Other groups of microorganism form products that range from organic acids to enzymes used for the production of various carbohydrates, amino acids and detergents. Biotechnology has also application in Plant and Animal tissue culture, waste and wastewater management, oil recovery and bioremediation.
