By M. Raafat El-Gewely

The Biotechnology Annual assessment covers a few of the advancements in biotechnology within the kind of complete, illustrated and good referenced experiences. With the growth of the sphere of biotechnology, coupled with the enormous raise within the variety of new journals reporting contemporary leads to this box, the necessity for a booklet that's continually delivering reports is pressing. for this reason, each one quantity of the Biotechnology Annual overview could have a few studies protecting various features of biotechnology. Reviewed themes will comprise biotechnology purposes in medication, agriculture, marine biology, undefined, bioremedation and the surroundings. basic difficulties facing improving the technical wisdom encountering biotechnology usage whatever the box of program may be rather emphasised. This sequence may also help either scholars and academics, researchers in addition to directors to stay an expert on all correct matters in biotechnology.

Proposals for contributions and/or feedback for issues for destiny volumes during this sequence will be despatched to the Editor: professor M.R.

Blood platelets. Blood platelets are not actually cells, but cell fragments which have been shed by megakaryocytes, the giant cells of the bone marrow. Blood platelets are of vital importance in blood coagulation and wound healing. They secrete a number of growth promoting substances including platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF). Actually, the PDGF itself is now being produced by genetic engineering and being clinically tested as a wound healing agent. 0 F. , Base1 [298]. Yeast-derived recombinant hepatitis B vaccines have now been given to millions of infants and children throughout the world.

22) as well as expressing heterologous proteins such as, for example, the naturally sweet proteins thaumatin and monellin [82]. Control of ripening and storage ability Experiments were undertaken in tomatoes using antisense technology to alter the production of the plant hormone ethylene. The use of antisense ACC synthase inhibits ethylene production and thus severely inhibits fruit ripening. Ripening can then be manipulated by added ethylene [97]. Medicine In the industrialized countries, genetic engineering and biotechnology are more developed in the field of medicine than in any other field of biotechnology.
