The biotechnology industry is fully dependent on living organisms. The cell being the basic unit, or multiple cells and some organisms are unicellular like bacteria and yeast. Humans are multi cellular having trillions of cells.
Scientists normally search for molecules of either chemical or biological agents that can alter a disease process. They strive to find ways to change one or several molecular or cellular processes.
This has brought about a plethora of changes in the evolution of laboratory techniques, tools and a focus on platform technologies. To understand these changes it is necessary to gather basic knowledge.
The lengthy process of drug discovery does not complete the process of drug development. It comprises safety and formulation and manufacture of drug. Preclinical Studies are testing experiments involving human’s studies.
This is a complex process of biologics as it involves proteins which are large molecules in structure and sensitive to environmental conditions. The manufacturing process can cost hundreds of millions of dollars.
Advancement of technology in the sphere of application in cellular and molecular biology has created many wonderful products to treat or prevent diseases and products are including therapeutic proteins.
How Biology Drives Biotechnology
Biology is a study of life and the basic unit of life is the cell. Biotechnology which is based on biology study the structure and the function of cells and uses this information to develop products.
Future of Biotechnology in Healthcare
Biotechnology offers more and better healthcare options, novel diagnostics and therapies for prevention and treatment of diseases. Although at an initial stage, it is ushering in an era of innovative medicines.
