ABSTRACT:
Pharmaceutical Biotechnology is not a source of energy, but a scientific method that provides tools to produce energy based entirely on modern biotechnological techniques, as to date encompass a wider range of altogether newer medicinal compounds, e.g., antibiotics, vaccines development and monoclonal antibodies (MABs) that may now be produced commercially using well-defined, optimized and improved fermentative methodologies. In fact, genetic engineering has brought in a sea change by virtue of the directed construction of microorganisms resulting in a plethora of newer life-saving drugs. Focus on a variety of  Research areas including health/medicine, food science, environmental science and agri- science and also bioenergy development.

Introduction:
Biotechnology is a huge part of our everyday lives. Biotechnology is the application to industry of advances made in the technique and instrument of research in the biological sciences to improve plants or animals or to develop microorganisms for specific uses.

What is biotechnology?
It is the manipulation of living organisms and organic material to serve Human Needs.  e.g. yeast in bread making and alcohol production ,use of beneficial bacteria (penicillin) to kill harmful organism, cloning of plant & animal, artificial insemination1.

Biology +Technology =Amazing Innovations.

Biotechnology Strategy2:

  • Simplicity/flexibility
  • Excellent
  • Lower grower cost
  • Healthy environmental sciences
  • Reduced herbicide residues
  • Higher yields and quality of foods.
  • Less acres used
  • Longer shelf life
  • Decreased molds
  • Respecting society values
  • Awareness
  • Visionary & Pragmatic

Biotechnology Benefits and Risks 1-5:

  • Decreasing reliance on pesticides
  • Insect resistance management
  • Gene flow and out crossing
  • Non-target organisms
  • Human, wildlife and environmental health
  • Preserving genetic diversity in plants and animals
  • Economic impacts

Goal3,5,8:

The need for new technologies is great, as the various described below:

  • "In Modern Era, there are some 900 million people who do not have access to sufficient food to meet their needs because of lack availability in Human population."
  • “Renewable energy technology management promoting village project, also ICU ventilator, Evapotranspiration. HSR(Human source radiation reducency project), Bio diversity”.
  • "(Global Climate Change-GCC) and alterations in land use will exacerbate the problems of regional production and demands for food."
  • "Malnutrition (e.g. Marasmus and kwashiorkor) plays a significant role in half of the nearly 12 million deaths each year of children under five in developing countries."
  • "In addition to lack of food, deficiencies in micro-nutrients (especially vitamin A, iodine and iron) are widespread4,6,7,9."
  • “Food infection and outside the environmental pollution as a major role for our health and also adulterated  medicines,  markers and herbal drugs to harmful our body and to came over our life.”
  • “To proper Guidance condition and situation according to need for farmer and at the same time, biotechnology can help farmers produce more nutritious crops, while sustaining the land's ability to support continued farming and may reduce the need for costly inputs such as fertilizer and non-renewable resources, such as oil and natural gas.”
  • "In developing countries about 750 million of the poorest people according to up to 2012 year  live in rural areas where the local production of food is the main economic activity. Without successful agriculture, these people will have neither employment nor the resources they need for a better life Farming the land is the engine of progress in less developed countries15,16."
