The Biotech Industry

June 4, 2024 12:00 am Published by

Biotech companies produce products that benefit human beings, including drugs and therapies that may save lives, increase yields in agriculture, and produce eco-friendly chemicals and fuels. Bioinformatics is another area which is the study of biological information and processes and can be applied to many different industries.

Biotech began in the early 1970s when recombinant-DNA technology (genetic engineering) was developed and patented. This technique lets scientists splice genes in production cells which later begin to create proteins that are valuable.

Today, most pharmaceutical companies have active target discovery research programs that are heavily reliant on biotechnology. Small companies also exist in the field of biotechnology that employ exclusive techniques to develop new therapeutic drugs.

Companies that focus on agrobiology, cosmetics, the environmental, food technology nutraceuticals, industrial biotechnology, along with veterinarian medicine, are exploring other biotechnology applications. Fully integrated Pharma companies are huge commercial companies that research, produce and sell generic or brand-name medicines.

A variety of new technologies are changing the biotech industry, allowing for companies to validate their products for conditions that are established mechanisms (such as sickle cell disease) and reach much larger patient populations. Some companies are trying to develop novel therapies for conditions that haven’t been addressed, such as Duchenne muscle dystrophy.
