ABSTRACT
I would like to initiate this document by making a briefdescription of the term Biotechnology, hoping to not hurt the feelings of many other professionals better versed than I, on the details of this science, as the application of traditional and/or scientific knowledge to manipulate microorganisms, cells or even higher organisms, directed to supply goods and services to the dailygrowing human population. With almost 30-year-old, biotechnology, driven by the abi lity to transplant a gene from one organism into another to introduce novel functionality in the receiving organism, has evolved to reprogram cellular behavior or incorporate increasingly complex biosynthetic pathways (to produce novel metabolic products or to achieve greater system integration) orgenetic regulatory constructs (to modulate the activity of recombinant genes in space and time) (Bhalerao, 2009). Biotechnology one of the riskiest industries has achieved a dynamic growth and unparalleled discovery, outstanding advances and contributions to human and animal medicine.
