Presentation Transcript

  1. Biotechnology

  2. Why Biotech? • Used widely in industry today • Many possible applications • Used extensively in the food industry – value-added products • Genomics is just beginning

  3. My knowledge is limited… where do I start?

  4. Two Types of Biotech • Old vs New

  5. History of Biotechnology • Earliest known biotech application • Cheesemaking • Lactic Acid Fermentation

  6. Alcohol Fermentation • Wine • Root Beer • Bread making

  7. Biotechnology, defined broadly, is the engineering of organisms for useful purposes.

  8. New Biotechnology • Genes • Genetic Engineering • Genomics

  9. Fourteen month-old genetically engineered (“biotech”) salmon (left) and standard salmon (right). Often, biotechnology involves the creation of hybrid genes and their introduction into organisms in which some or all of the gene is not normally present.
