OPPORTUNITIES IN BIOTECHNOLOGY. Bioentrepreneurship and Job opportunities in Biotechnology By Dr.R.JAGANNATHAN . PRESENT SCENARIO.
Job opportunities in Biotechnology
It is essential that many capable and young Biotech professionals of India
set up enterprises
to provide jobs instead of just looking for jobs. It is very conceivable to make their investment a success, just as we are celebrating the amazing achievements of the entrepreneurs in the software sector. These entrepreneurs come from diverse backgrounds which is also the need of the hour for the Indian Biotech sector.

E.G. MANOALIDE FROM PACIFIC SPONGE AS ANTI-INFLAMMATORY AGENT.
SOME ARE SALT RESISTANT GIVING AN ADVANTAGE IN INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES.
The unit will produce the following Bio-Fertilizers:
Bio Fertilizer demand all over India -12,43,940 M.T.
Bio Fertilizer demand in Tamil Nadu - 50,000 M.T.
Bio Fertilizers produced
in Tamil Nadu at present - 2,000 M.T.
(Including Government & Private Institutions)
The gap is due to lack of awareness among the farmers.

Some of the noteworthy techniques leading to the employment avenues are described here.
Curriculum Vitae of candidates must have reference to the techniques which are learnt. Expertise which is gained on instrument while doing Real Time Projects must be reflected in the Resume .
Cells from plant tissues can be grown for producing active components for various industries e.g. pharmaceutical, flavours and aroma based organizations.
The Commercial production would entail exposure to Microbiology techniques, maintenance of sterile atmosphere free of other micro organism by usage of Bio hoods.
Biocatalysts play a very important role in the industrial production of several products in Paper, textile, pharmaceutical industries. The preparation of suitable and commercially viable enzymes has been possible due to protein engineering. Novel proteins could be designed to deactivate viruses and to counter tumour causing cells. Food products could also be produced designing better proteins.
Biological components like enzyme or antibody are coupled with electronic components like a detecting device , transducer ( which produces a signal) to form a biosensor. These coupled devices are used industrially to produce better quality foods and clinically to measure blood parameters in bed ridden patients. Detection of toxins and infectious biological agents is also possible very much in an economical fashion.
The marriage of micro volume of Biological samples (micro fluidics) and measurement of micro signals has created the exciting field of Nano biotechnology which has tremendous application potential in treatment and diagnosis.
The practice of combining Genetic material from various living sources is becoming quite common and the ramifications of this technology is reaching into agriculture for enhancing yields, bio control measures etc. It is being used for producing Biodegradable plastics too.
